Well, this was the last RIAT I attended for a while . This is the x-th year in a row that the quality of the show declines .
Sure we had the Raptor, but it was not that special . Should a F-16 have flown that presentation everybody would have bad comments on the show .
No special paints, a small static - though the choppers were something of a nice change .
And the heritage flight had been done at Biggin' Hill too . So it doesn't make RIAT any more special . And the BoB memorial was a plain joke . Compared to what The Fighter Collection achieves at Duxford ...
Apart from the price of the tickets, there's nothing special about RIAT anymore .
