Air Tattoo 2005 at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire.
The Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) is the
largest military airshow in world regualrly boasting
line-ups of 300 or more aircraft. In 2005 the
Tattoo focusses on the secretive world of Surveillance
aircraft which includes a wide variety of types
from modified business jets, military fast jets
to UAVs and the mysterious U-2 spy plane, one of
which should be on static display. As ever, there
was the largest static and flying displays of
the year with everything from a Pitts Special to
Eurofighter Typhoon to the mighty B-52H Stratofortress.
