RIAT 2008 Fairford air show airshow display aircraft airplane aeroplane

932 views 6 people's favourite photo

F22 Raptor on it's official debut in the UK. The practise display put on by this aircraft and pilot on Friday was stunning, making it a real shame that the scheduled full displays never happened on Saturday and Sunday, but at least we got to watch the practise run in the rain. The vapour is where the water in the air is forced to condense into clouds as the air is displaced by the aircraft making sudden movements.... and this aircraft is capable of making very sudden movements indeed.

Superb photo of a technologiacal marvell..

..which is absolutely useless against a suicide bomber with a briefcase full of dirty bomb.

War has changed methinks.

Nice shot. Love the vaoour clouds. Can you bring the afterburner out a bit more? I think it would give it a bit more punch.

Yes, it gave an amazing display... well, practise display. It never flew on the actual display days as they cancelled the show. Good old UK weather....
