My first Air Tattoo was at Greenham Common in 1981, its been an annual fixture in my life since then. For me its a week in the countryside, away from work and with good friends who I normally only see once a year. The aircraft participation has changed over the years, the glory days of the 1990s are long gone now, there are aviation enthusiasts out there who would do well to realise that.

I’ll use this page to post links to my posts on the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford.
