On Sunday 21 July the organisers of the Royal International Air Tattoo were pleased to welcome Tony Foulds from Sheffield to his first ever RIAT experience.
Tony was accompanied by two friends to RIAT 2019 and spent the day watching aircraft from around the world perform over RAF Fairford. Tony also bumped into old friends from the USAF, sat inside a B-52 and KC-135 and also saw the final UK performance of the Red Arrows.
Tony also bumped into one USAF servicewoman (below) who was selling T-shirts commemorating the ten crew members killed in that B-17 crash. She had hoped that Tony might be at the Air Tattoo and was ecstatic to see him. The pair spent time exchanging stories and, of course, Tony did leave with a T-shirt.
