Back then though f'bh was a small town surrounded by heathland, now it's a large built up area, just part of the London sprawl - the cancer of the environment. Any way, nice aeroplanes wasted here include Maltese king air, Portuguese cn235, us army lakota, army defender, wildcat, 15stormo aw139 and perhaps most pointless of all the 4 sqn spec hawk being used by bar for cockpit tours !
Wasted...in what way ?...think you'll find that the maj ority of the aircraft you mention are under the control of the manufacturer rather than the air arm whose colours they are painted in..so I guess it's up to them what they decide to bring to the show
Wasted as in its nigh on impossibe to get images of them. Thanks for the info though- I'm pretty new to this airshow game...
