Biało-Czerwone Iskry to be exact... but now I'm just being a pesky pedant :grin:

Also Minsk is not the home of the entire Polish Fulcrum fleet, 41.elt based at 22.BLT Malbork fly our old friends the ex-German AF Mig 29 "G"s alongside a few of the original fleet.

There was a Polish Mi-14 at Fairford - in 2012.

It had a massive Orca painted down the side - I asked the crewman sitting in his deckchair looking bored if I could look round inside.

I took loads of piccies......

Ken

PS - Just noticed that its the same one in the photos report above.......

It's not just the number of names it's the bizarre nature of them - a Falcon, a bright star (or possibly raccoon!?!) a delicate flowering herb, huge wetland snake and big fat game bird :dizzy: Even the proposed variants had different, equally odd names- alligator, salamander, hawk and hussar!!
