There was a topic about this some years ago, so let's make a new one. I'm sure there are a few other aviation enthusiasts lurking around. Feel free to share any pics you might have!

I attended RIAT on Friday the 13th (and most of Saturday the 14th but we just walked around and shot the static planes that day). I've chosen what I feel are the best of the ~1k pictures I took of the flying display. All of them were taken with a Nikon D80 and a Tamron 70-300mm F/4-5.6 lens, they're both old and slow by modern standards but I don't have the money to upgrade atm.

Nice pics, thank you for posting them!

I'm spending most of my time in Russia and could take last year pictures of a Tu-95 and a Tu-160 flying low at the 9th of May parade, I'll try to find the memory card and will post the pics there.

Please do, it's rare to see Russian aircraft over here so I'd like to see them!

An aviation enthusiast choosing a username like Yak_Forger simply cannot be a bad person... :)
