All very lovely, many very much missed, I never saw a G91Y, and to be honest seeing your pictures, they really made a pig's ear of the looks compared to the single engine R and T. :grin:

As you were clearly at Leeuwarden in 1994, and saw the Portuguese A-7 pair display, the Czechs flew the MiG23 there as well? RIAT 1997 was the other time I saw the display, great to see swinging around in big loops and turns with its wings in various positions. :biggrin:

keep em coming :up:

Thank you, Caper! As far as I can recall it I missed the MiG-23 display at Leeuwarden in 1994 because of being stuck in the queue for the shuttle bus from the off-base car park onto the base… it was very frustrating to miss it, of course! :-X
Talking about the Flogger - one of its most likely opponents in case of a shooting war would have been the Phantoms of Nos. 19 & 92 Squadron at RAF Wildenrath. Here are a few of these magnificent jets, hope you like them as much as I do!
#233 XV899(B) No.19 Sqn’ s all-blue flagship - IAT’ 91:
