    Three more images from RIAT 2013.

    The first two are the Breitling Wing Walkers, the only full time wing walking team in the world and very impressive.

    I like the formation wing walkers - we only get one at the Clacton Airshow.

    So by "rotary" you mean a helicopter?

    Yes. "Rotary wing" is one way of classifying them.

    Remember, helicopters can't fly. They beat the air into submission.
