As the forecast was for good weather / light, I thought I would pop down to my local to get more shots of the F-16's.
The 480th Fighter Squadron - "Warhawks" did not keep me waiting long and soon ten of them were up along with some 493rd FS "Grim Reapers" F-15C's and the two F-15D's.
However, a little surprise was in stall for me, especially as I had not gone to R.I.A.T. 2017 and at 10.46am two Lockheed F-22A Raptor's came into the circuit and landed. They had come from RAF Fairford.
