Looked OK to me, but then again I’ve already said I like it. :)


I'm located next to Blackpool Airport and I also saw ZM416 doing several nice circuits and I agree with Eric it looks 'ok ish' on the A400m.


Photo of it up on the SWAG website - http://www.southwalesaviationgroup.co.uk/ ( it spent a couple of hours runway-bashing at Cardiff )
At least they've done it a decent size, which makes it look less of an after-thought.

That's no way to talk about Cardiff, or Blackpool for that matter! :whistle:

... Actually.... :whistle:

I saw the A400M farting about over the city on its way to and from the airport earlier. I saw a flash of something on the tail but couldn't identify what it was, given that looking into the sun. Thought it might've been the Air Assault Brigade markings.

Love how frequent they are down here. That characteristic whistle is like nothing else. :rock:

The A400M was at Newquay for an hour this lunchtime, any splash of colour on that grey is welcome. I quite like it.

It appears there are 2x RAF Tucanos sporting the RAF100 Logo on the fin, ZF290 & ZF293.
Seen over the last few days at Blackpool Airport.

Voyager ZZ330 also has the horrible sticker on its tail.

Are we running a poll or moving on? :dunno: :dizzy:

I bagged a few yesterday, Chinook, Tutor, Prefect, Tucano, Atlas, plastic F-35. Typhoon was a let down typically and why the hell wasn't the Puma at the RAF's only show? Surely after the QBF it could have popped north to Cosford. :wall:

We are running a pole over, apparently, and then moving on.

Sounds like failing to stop after an accident to me.

What's all that about the bridesmaids not looking better than the bride - well the Pakistani C130 seems to have broken that rule.

I've just seen it on FC, very nice, appears to be 75 years anniversary of Pakistan AF markings as well (a bit odd as Pakistan became independent in 1947?, but I'm sure there is a logical reason), but yes our sticker does look weak. :facepalm:

Very nice flypast over London there.

The 100 by the Typhoons was particularly well done.

Agreed, The Typhoon flypast was slow, and almost perfect and the best part of a rather strung out display.

3 x F-35's were .......ok

all hawks were great, as where 9 Tonka's, which is close to being 50% of the total Tonka force, but show us all that they can do it if they really try.

god help us at RIAT if the flypast is that high though.

From Heathrow it looked very good.

How could the F-35s have been "better" than ok in a flypast?

I agree with the previous comments, that the Typhoon '100' was very good, viewed from a packed Waterloo Bridge. I was surprised as to how big the gaps were between some of the items, but overall a great spectacle, which drew massive interest from thousands of people..... well done RAF!

thanks
