Fairford 2018

Recommended Posts

I love Fairford - it's always a fantastic event.

i haven't been for years but used to go regularly with my dad as a child. This year I bought him surprise tickets as a Father's Day present and we both had a wonderful time.

Despite an hour of mild rain, the weather was perfect. I thought parking and gaining entry were great, quite slick.

the best bit was of course the flying displays. Personally I thought the French Rafale's (both C and M versions) along with the Italian Tricolore, Finnish F/A-18, Turkish F-16C and the RAF Typhoon all put on a stunning show. The Red Arrows were, as usual, just perfect. And I must confess the F35a lightning really demonstrated some serious power and agility - quite impressive. 

And it was so great to see the Spitfire, Hurricane and Lancaster all flying together. Great these aircraft are still up and running.

A fab day. A big thank you to RIAT, everyone involved in putting it on, and to all the pilots!
