all the best Dougie
The Polish 29 tends to only do one UK show per year and, having recently ripped up the skies over Fairford, it would seem unlikely that we'll get it at Leuchars. Still, you never know - its displays in 2006 and 2010 were obvious highlights of both shows.
The second display was 2009, not 2010. As for the Czech Gripen, I believe they don't have a display pilot this year.

Haven't seen one flying for a while and it would be great to see again...

With the exception of some American or Russian exotica (B1, B2, F22, Tu-anything......) I honestly can't think of anything better than a flying F-4, no need for anything spectacular - a couple of low level high speed passes would be wonderful / incredible / amazing [pant wetting smilie].

That's good to know!
I had a scratch about the net but couldn't find anything that definite, just a journo article about them flying at Waddington immediately before their withdraw (should have known better than to believe it), but I now see that there is a press release from the German military stating June 30th 2013...
I've sent JG71 a few begging emails in the past asking about the possibilities / begging for a flying F-4, but all without response - looks like the clock is ticking/has almost stopped for a flying F-4 over Scotland?
