Airshow: RIAT 2008 Departures

The airshow that never was!  Following torrential rain in the days leading up to the show days, the car parks around the show ground flooded and the organisers made the difficult and unprecedented decision to cancel the displays.  A tough decision as this was to be the year of the F-22 Raptor’s debut in the UK.

Luckily, by the Monday the weather had improved enough to allow those with a ticket to attend for the departures.
