RIAT photos will be along soon (only a month or two late!)

Guess which Red has left the oven on...

Today I witnessed Concorde 216 (G-BOAF), the last Concorde to fly, being towed across the runway at Filton into her new home, the Bristol Aerospace museum. The whole office was over at the windows to watch her disappear into the hangar! Such an aviation icon 😍

You can keep up to date with news of the new museum over at @aerospacebristol. It's due to open later this year! ✈

Day 20 at it's 'Electronic Warfare' with @kjdphoto1971 for #0217planes.

This is a new Wildcat of the Royal Navy with its nose-mounted 'electro-optical laser designator' turret proudly on display. I don't know exactly what it does but it looks cool...


Day 13 of #0217planes with @kjdphoto1971 and the theme is 'Swing Wing'.

Here's a German Tornado with wings fully forward roaring off from RIAT.

RIAT 2017 is nearly upon us and like those of you fortunate enough to be attending too, I'm getting rather excited! Here's a #tbt to last year and my first F-35 experience ✈

Maybe I'll get to meet some of you this time?

Day 21 - 'Budget Airline' for #0217planes with @kjdphoto1971
No seats, cabin fittings or flight attendants - it's a step further than Ryanair!

Two fighters from two wars: the North American P-51 Mustang from WW2 and the MiG-15 from the Korean War.

I suppose this fits the bill for @alc_photography26's choice of #dailythemetag, #world_war_wednesday

The Reds doing their best impression of the Black Arrows, one of their RAF display team predecessors!

The Black Arrows flew Hawker Hunters and one of their most memorable stunts was a world record loop with 22 Hunters in close formation at Farnborough Airshow in 1958!

French Rafale making clouds as it pulls up during its incredible display at Yeovilton Air Day this year 😍

It was great to see the BBMF Lancaster back in the skies again at Duxford and #RIAT17 - the last time I saw her she was flying in formation with her Canadian sister at Biggin Hill in 2014 ✈ ✈

Fantastic to see the USAF Thunderbirds for the first time at RIAT on Saturday! Here's the 2 solos performing their famous mirror pass 👌

Saturday at RIAT started pretty badly with persistent drizzle cancelling several displays including the F-22 😞 But this fantastic display from the Ukrainian Air Force's Sukhoi SU-27 'Flanker' made it well worth going!🔥

It's my busiest weekend of the year - I've just left the fantastic Yeovilton Air Day and I'm heading straight for Duxford's Flying Legends for the first time! Who else is going tomorrow?

My feed is in desperate need of some colour... so here are the Reds to brighten it up! 🎨
