This year’s RIAT was well supported by international military participants, with plenty of fast-jet demonstrations. The USAF Heritage Flight performed flypasts with an F-35 and a Mustang. Propeller powered displays were provided by Team Orlik of Poland, Croatia’s Krila Oluje and the Royal Jordanian Falcons. Sunday saw the last ever public display of Ramex Delta and their two Mirages.

The weather was mostly overcast with sunny spells at lunchtime.
