That last one should really be POTW, it's everything a guy wants for a fast jet ride in one! Love the P-3 and the Sea King shot!

One of the best posts ever!! :yahoo: Excellent stuff - too many to comment on but the Albatross, Dak, Boxcar, Sabre dog and Thunderflash are way up there. So glad the F-5s and '104s didn't go green.. Superb stuff sir.

Is that the People's Mosquito I see? Or is it just Norwegian Wood...

(Wouldn't mind seeing the Junkers 52 that's visible in the background of the Texan shot)

The 104s operated by 334sqn were green, the ones operated by 331sqn were grey/silver.

Fantastic post by the way! :)
