Royal Intern. Air Tattoo  RAF Fairford,  15 July 2006

Again for the third year in a row, and for the ninth time ever I went to the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford. This time my girlfriend Angèl went with me for the first time. A few months ago we booked a bus-trip with Holland Aviation Travel. Despite good experiences in the past, this years bus-tour was a real disaster.


Our bus left Breda around 9 o'clock in the evening as planned, however a few hours later close to the French border we got stuck in a traffic jam which lasted three hours. This made us miss the ferry to England. When we finally arrived in England we had a flattened tire. But it even got worse, 4 miles from RAF Fairford the bus died, flat tire, brake problems and a broken turbo. Thanks to some great work by the British police who arranged a new bus we finally arrived at Fairford around 10.15, at least 4 hours late!!


After the airshow our bus was still broke, so we had to wait for a new bus to come from the Netherlands. This bus wasn't great either, so after a long night we finally arrived home at 11.30 o'clock in the morning.   (Click here for a full log)
