Royal International Air Tattoo 2013

18 Jul 2013 12:58 #10349 by Algernon
This is the official thread for FGUK's coverage of the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford, England, one of the largest airshows in the world.

I'll be there on Saturday, bringing you live updates across the FGUK media spectrum - here in this thread, on our Twitter feed @FlightGearUK and hopefully on FGUK TV too.

You can read about #RIAT13 on their website - www.airtattoo.co.uk/airshow . I'll be posting regularly in this thread during the buildup to Saturday. Please feel free to join in and make this outside broadcast a truly community affair!

Be sure to bring a hat. I was at the London (Ontario) international airshow in the mid eighties with some buddies and we forgot to bring some. My forehead completely peeled the week after. :oops:

Mmmm, that's a good idea... a Panama would go very well with my planned look!

OK, so a quick update from the show. Mobile internet is non-existent, probably due to the extra load on the local rural cell, so I lost the ability to tweet. Going to catch up now and get some of my (feeble) photos in there and on here. Reds and A380 currently doing a flyby. Some video, probably awful... going to try live in a bit...
