At the 1986 Mildenhall show, there were 10 RAF phantoms on show. I assume that it might have been some sort of Anniversary. Here are some of them.

Ah those were the days! Love them and I do miss those Mildenhall Air Fetes.

Do you also have some shots of that gorgeous blue Lightning that's hiding next to one of the Phantoms?

It was a "Fighter Command" celebration and included Lightnings, Tornado F3 and Hawks as well. By that time all the F-4 units were Air Defence tasks and all RAF Phantom units were represented.

And you had the added bonus of a Bud and a wet burger for breakfast.

IIRC it was the 50th anniversary of Fighter Command.
