    Thanks, yes it was very hot on the Saturday but I hear Sunday was even hotter! Very good of them to have the drinking stations though, haven't refilled so much in one day!

    Love the paint job on the Belgian F-16. Against a typical RIAT sky (ie dark and wet!) that would've looked superb.

    But it's always the sight of an Su-27 which makes me regret having my wings clipped by my mother's dementia. One day I'll get to see one fly again. The highlight of my airshow life was seeing two display at Biggin in... er... '98?

    Anyway, thanks for sharing.

    PS Apparently it was '92! http://www.fightercontrol.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=95706

    How is the 80D? I've been looking at them recently as an upgrade from my 60D. The 70D was a let down IMO due to very little improvements over the 60D, did the 80D improve on that?

    Thanks. You can't live too far away from it if you're in Swindon, well worth going to it's a fantastic airshow.

    It's a great camera, but I'm not sure about the 70D or 60D as my Camera before was a 700D.

    I thought I had missed RIAT this year.. Wasn't that bothered about it until our (southport) Airshow was on.....By the time I had realised RIAT was still to come. Couldn't get the tickets I wanted......I've also been talking myself in and out of buying the 150-600 to go with my D810 for a couple of years noe. After shooting Fully Manually for the first time this year with a 70-200 f2.8 and a X2 teleconverter I have loads of soft and OOF shots... So need more practice too.



    EDIT

    Oops sorry. Forgot to say some fantastic shots there mate
