Royal International Air Tattoo

The world's biggest military air show, at RAF Fairford. The base is leased to the US Air Force and has climate-controlled hangars for their various exotic planes. It was used for long-range bomber missions in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq but is currently in reserve. Unfortunately, budget cuts mean the USAF isn't participating in air shows until further notice, with the exception of letting this one happen on their base. I took 2,705 photos during seven hours of flying displays so it'll be a while before I finish editing them!

It's not obvious from the photos but almost nothing flew directly over the crowd so, in the great majority of cases, if you see the underside of a plane, it's because it was flying on its side. And there are no funny camera angles: if a plane looks like it's pointing straight up, straight down or at some other weird angle, that's because it was.

Highlights

The best of the photos, for people who aren't interested enough to look through all mumble-hundred. All the photos in this section also appear in the section for the plane in question. Most of the planes in the flying display are included here.

Air-to-air refuelling demo

An Italian KC-767A tanker demonstrating refuelling two Eurofighter Typhoons: an Italian on on the port wing and a British one to starboard. As you can see, the fighters didn't actually connect to the refuelling drogues, or even extend their refuelling probes. They returned and landed after the Vulcan display.
