RIAT '09, the largest military airshow in Europe. I attended on the Saturday, and was fortunate enough to be taken airside by a friend so that I could photograph the flying participants that are normally inaccessible to the public. Some shots from northside, then flying shots from the Pimm's enclosure southside during the afternoon. The weather was variable, with heavy black clouds frequently threatening torrential rain, but thankfully this held off until the following day.
