Sukhoi SU-27 display – RIAT 2017

The highlight of the show for me was the Ukrainian Air Force Sukhoi SU-27 Flanker. Quite a lazy display in terms of fast jets, and clearly nothing compared to some of the newer 5th and 6th generation fighters that seem to be everywhere in the sky at once, especially the Rafale and Typhoon displays from this year’s show. Nevertheless the SU-27 is big and powerful and the Ukrainians put on a great display with this jet.

Tornado ECR close call on landing – RIAT 2017 arrivals

This German Air Force Tornado ECR from TG-51 (Taktisches Luftwaffengeschwader 51) Tigers encountered a huge flock of birds right on the approach at the eastern end of RAF Fairford’s runway.

The birds took of a few minutes earlier and caught a thermal that took them right into the flightpath of the oncoming aircraft. Thankfully the pilot saw them in time and was able to climb out over them and return a few minutes later to make a safe landing.
