The Extra 300s of the Royal Jordanian Falcons:

Probably the most discussed edition of the Royal International
Air Tattoo ever, since a period of heavy rain in the week prior to
the show flooded the airfield and surrounding carparks. Therefore
the organisation cancelled both showdays in the weekend.
A real disappointment for all people involved in the organisation
as well as those thousands intending to visit the air show.
Despite the bad weather, people visiting the arrival/departure
days still had the opportunity to see the participants. Highlights
of this year were the Brazilian C-105 (Casa 295) and T-27
Tucanos of EDA Fumaça as well as the appearance of the Pakistani
P-3C Orion, which was decorated with a nicely painted
tail. Also the appearance of the first F-22 Raptors were a real
treat, especially the demo rehearsal at Friday. On that same
day the Royal Air Force celebrated its 90th Anniversary with
a fly past of 90 aircraft for HM the Queen that visited Fairford.
