RIAT – Heavy Haulers and other visitors
Fighter pilots mate movies, bomber pilots make history, transport pilots bring the beer!
A selection of the transport aircraft at the show, be they static display or support aircraft.
The Airbus A400M made its UK airshow debut. The damp conditions created show interesting propwash vapour, the 2 engines on each wing turn in opposite directions creating some fun aerodynamics
Herky birds in numbers also arrived. The Americans are always patriotic.
The Omani has that added sparkle though, it was a very smart aircraft and nice to see.
The German mini-herk C-160 Transall
