Alex 'Scotty' Ford has just posted his new blog detailing the events at last weekend's aborted Royal International Air Tattoo.

The show was sadly cancelled at the last minute and even the well drilled and highly organised Just Flight show team had a few mishaps. There's a video included in the blog where Alex gives a blow-by-blow account of the weekend unfolding - it does show several aircraft in the air (including a Spitfire and Eurofighter flying together), but most of them were unfortunately confined to the runway all weekend. 

In the absence of more video footage of the many wonderful aircraft due to fly at the show, you'll have to make do with plenty of rain, Scott working on his golf handicap, Richard enjoying some savoury snacks and Mr Ford's comments on the cargo of German helicopters...

Read the blog here!

More images of the conditions that forced the cancellation are available on the RIAT 2008 website - you can see why the organisers deemed it necesary to call the show off.
