Hi James. I am the Editor of the RIAT souvenir Programme and I’m compiling a special commemorative book to celebrate IAT’s 50th anniversary next year and I would very much like to include your image of the B-52 Stratofortress – USAF, from RIAT 2002 in the book. Full accreditation would of course be given should this be acceptable. I look forward to hearing from you.
