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

The RNZAF Boeing 757 returned with another polished display.

For the first time in many years the USAF C-17 display was present, carring out a parachute drop before its own display.

Herky birds in numbers also arrived. The Americans are always patriotic.

Belgian, American (x2) and Jordanian

The Omani has that added sparkle though, it was a very smart aircraft and nice to see.

The German mini-herk C-160 Transall

a C-40, Belgian Falcon and Speckled Trout round of the selection
