Waddington 2010 with answer to what is the odd one out

Postby rob68 on Sun 14 Jan 2018, 2:33 pm

Waddington 2010 does not seem a long time ago.

If I am correct there is a link between these shots, can you identify it, which is the odd one out and why?

If I have identified these correctly, you can not see any of these fly today in the UK other than the Spitfire.

They have all either been sold abroad, scrapped, grounded, crashed or the COA has expired. The Spitfire did a wheels up landing years ago, was repaired and is still flying today. As the only current flyer in the UK today, it is the odd one out. (Non of the crashes were fatal BTW).

Please correct me if I am wrong on any of these

Amazing how in such a short space of time how much of that stuff isn't flying any more.
