RIAT Revisited.

Some scans from various Royal International Air Tattoos of years past this week.

Most are from different years at Fairford but a couple are from Cottesmore, from

Orford Ness.

This week we cover our visit to the former weapons research establishment at Orford Ness in Suffolk.

Now looked after by the National Trust, the (long!) walk around the post-apocalyptic looking site

While on our travels we come across many memorials dedicated to the brave men and women who gave their lives so we could enjoy a peaceful one


Some of these are by the side of the road some are in the middle of a field so we try to look out for the more obscure ones

No one should be forgotten

Following the Sea Vixen’s successful display closing the show at Duxford Air Show, upon her return the Sea Vixen suffered an under carriage failure and Pilot Cdr Simon Hargreaves performed a highly controlled wheels up text book landing at RNAS Yeovilton showing first class airmanship.
