I have just had a very enjoyably week camping in Fairford for the 2018 Royal International Air Tattoo, we had some fantastic weather for most of the week but on the Friday we had an hour of rain and we were surrounded by thunder storms which led to the cancellation of the Flypast to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the RAF
but for the rest of the week we were treated to some fantastic flying displays and i will start this post with a shot of a very photogenic Su-27 Flanker from the 831st Tactical Aviation Brigade of the Ukrainian Air Force

Got the Sport spoiler, Pro Nav but little else.
Sat on 19-inch Spiders which have just been fully refurbished and look box fresh (although he hasn't replaced the roundels or the little ///M stickers, which I will do)
Just had brand new pads/discs all round too.
