With no Airshow this year at RIAT I thought I'd share some of the more memorable display's!
This was 2017 and we just had a heavy rain shower, and the Flanker was sat at the end of the runway for several minutes when there was some stunning sunshine, so it was a great shame he missed the best of the light but that flat display was awesome

Я украинец. Но меня это все очень впечатляет. Вот когда моя страна научиться делать что-то подобное. Я буду гордиться своей страной.

Hey Elwyn! Just wanted to thank you for the videos. Ive been attending RIAT for the past 5-6 years, and its always one of the highlights of the year for me. So with the virus this year and it being cancelled, I've been rewatching old displays you've uploaded. I think every year "I wonder where Elwyn is standing this year" - since searching for the F-22 display in 2017 on youtube (still my fave!)
But yeah - I appreciate the time and effort you put into this, and will continue to look forward to new content when the world allows! Hope you're safe and well.

That really is a very impressive plane - awesome footage. Some pretty high G turns and surprising slow speed demo.
Much enjoyed. :)

Very elegant plane, I liked its lines from when I saw it first. The manoeuvrability is just stunning. Your camera work is again spot on !
