RIAT 2011 (Part 2)

The RAF Role Demo consists of just two Tornado GR4s now, but it's still a good show:

The Vulcan display was much more aggressive than last year's, with wing-overs and a noisy spiral climb halfway through:

It was almost inverted at one point!:

The Frecce Tricolori out-shone the Red Arrows this year I think. Always an exciting display:

The Ukrainian Air Force sent over an Su-27 Flanker, but it was only static unfortunately. It would have been great to see it display:

Overall, a good show, but I'm not sure it was worth the entrance fee (nearly 45). I'll probably wait until the last minute next year and see if they get any interesting items, otherwise Farnborough will probably be priority.
