On the 7th of July I made my way to RAF Fairford for the Royal International Air Tattoo. Waking up in the morning I realised I was in for a relatively wet day. Yes, another wet weekend. Fortunately by the time I arrived at RAF Fairford, the rain had stopped but everything was still pretty wet. The weather did not stop the show carrying on as there were close on 60000 people in attendance on the Saturday. It did become quite wet around midday when the clouds opened up and it started bucketing down. Fortunately it only lasted about half an hour.
The first thing that strikes you is the immense size of the Air Tattoo. The static display was over a mile long and there was a dedicated bus which stopped along the route at dedicated points. The flying display was amazing, with it starting at 10am and continuing right up until 5:30pm. It is well worth attending and I will be making my way there again next year.
