Surprises, debuts and special RAF100 displays made this year’s Royal International Air Tattoo sparkle. Nigel Price reviews the event.
The best display teams, unusual aircraft and a few UK ‘firsts’ are always guaranteed at the annual Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire. And this is especially true when it coincides with the Farnborough International Airshow. True to form, RIAT 2018 produced a long and varied flying programme, plus some superb items on static display.
