Royal International Air Tattoo 2018 Saturday round-up

It was a blissfully hot day in RAF Fairford on Saturday, 14th July, 2018 for the Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) 2018. The RAF website has access to a few impressive shots taken during the event.

RIAT began on Friday, 13th July with the Royal Review, at which the new Queen’s Colour was paraded for the first time at a public event. As well as precision aerobatics from the Red Arrows and the Italian Frecce Tricolori there were demonstrations from ultra-modern fighters such as the USAF F-35A.

 

A team of photographers were on the tarmac, and utilising every vantage point to capture the best images of these magnificent displays.
