And to be pedantic, theres a FrAF Paris behind the Danish Dak, really pedantic - the PR9 is a 16Sqn B(I)8 and really really pedantic - turboprops are technically "jets".. :grin:

Again, a super selection Fred, all lovely types - I'm getting quite exited by all those Varsities...:drool:

Is that a PR9 behind the Argosy?

You took too much interest in the background of that gorgous Argosy pic ! :grin: Yes, yes it is - Finningley '83 I believe, my pic of it has a lot of people in it! :sad:

To be even more pedantic :pinkwafer: I'm sure that the Tu95MS is at Fairford in 1994, where it flew in the display on the Saturday. :wink:

But away from the pedant, fantastic stuff Fred, gotta love the Beverley and the RAF Herc in the light stone/dark earth scheme :drool: Any of the Paris hiding behind the Dak? :clap: :clap:

You'd even get in at the NAM V-Force event with the landing picture of TG517 - training Vulcan Navs!! :clap:

Stunning Varsities! Managed to log 2 hrs (well, 1hr 56mins actually) in Andover XS643 Northolt to Northolt via many bumps at Brize in 1993...
..very happy days :biggrin:

Brilliant brilliant stuff as ever Fred. Every one of them.

(I think the Argosy at Finningley was 84. We're a pedantic lot on here aren't we :biggrin: )

Not sure where the Beverly shot was taken? Don't think its Abingdon though, hangar background doesn't look familiar.

Any ideas?

I have a huge soft spot for old scanned shots, basically because they show a time I was born too late to witness and these gorgeous images are among the best I've ever seen. Huge thanks for sharing them!
