Photo Comment

I realise the way things are now that RIAT can no longer be 'just' an air show, rather has become an all round families day out. This means that the show arprons are packed with outlets/stalls/etc., that have nothing to do with aviation but will keep the casual visitor entertained and bring in valuable income for the organisers. Unfortunately this means that often the static exhibits have hideous backgrounds .... yet RIAT brings in planes that are so interesting for me but hard to photograph elsewhere.
