I just booked my Fairford visit with the 4aviation bus trip. Since it is my first visit of the RIAT I was wondering if a grand stand ticket is much better than standing along the crowd line. I am asking because at Le Bourget 2015 the crowd line was just perfect to get nice pictures (you have to find a spot early though to stand directly at the fence).

What about the crowd line? Do you guys have any experience or maybe some example pictures taken at the crowd line?
