RIAT (Royal International Air Tattoo)
Jun 14, 2011

This year I hope to make it to RIAT for the first time. The first time I had tickets it was rained out; the next time I got swine flu.

This will be the first air show I have attended since I bought a DSLR in 2007, so I am looking for tips on air shows in general and RIAT in particular

  • what time should I plan to arrive?

  • best place(s) for photos?

  • equipment to take?

  • anything special I should know?

I'll be taking my D700 with 28-70 and D300 with 70-300. My tripod to help with long zoom shots and panning.

All advice gratefully received.

FYI, if you haven't been to RIAT, details are here. http://www.airtattoo.com/airshow
