A little bit, apart from all the differences :whistle: :whistle:


Obviously the Croatian flag has a coat-of-arms in the middle. What are all the other differences?

Thanks very much for the continuous updates Tommy. They do go to show just how samey nearly everyone's air forces are in this day and age though, big change from years ago when you could know almost instantly from a far away silhouette what and who was coming in.

That’s it for me from arrivals. Couple of rehearsals and validations left, some notable absences (Wedgetail and Rivet Joint), but little left to do.

Soooo that’s arrivals done. My first doing it “Live” on the forum. By Christ its a task. Hopefully you’ve all enjoyed it. I’m gonna sit back and relax for the rest of the show. Thanks to many for the kind comments.

As you can see from my post count, I don't get on here much these days, but I wanted to log on just to say thanks to Tommy for the time & effort he's taken to bring us those excellent pics - very much appreciated ! :smile:

Let's hope those thunderstorms & showers miss us tomorrow!

Many thanks to Tommy for posting this series of photos. :up: I can't be there this year, so viewing these images is the second best option for me. I hope that everyone who attends this event has a fab time.
Cheers,

George
