Crowds of approximately 150,000 visited RAF Fairford for the Royal International Air Tattoo this year. Highlights from the three day event included the final RIAT appearance of the Vulcan XH558 before it retires later this year, and flypasts from the RAF Red Arrows on Saturday and Sunday. In total there were 232 aircraft from 27 air arms and representing 22 countries. Here are 20 spectacular pictures from the weekend.
