Noticed the F3 Farewell thread on aviation waffle so thought it would be good to start this - post as many pics as you like - the more the better
Heres a few to kick it off

A collection of F3s at Leeming I did a while back, hence the needless copyright banner...

Everytime I see that last photo, I struggle to find any words to suitably describe it. Just wow! The first shot of yours Mark is also a belter too - lucky man!

I'm almost ashamed to post these now that I have seen those above. These shots taken with either a Praktica or a Pentax P30 using K64 film. Scanned on an old Epson scanner. Still they bring back great memories of the days when aircraft could carry some great markings/schemes.

Fred Grundy with the 'Red Zebra' was something of a legend and his display with the F3 was quite special.

Unfortunately it was around this time (1990ish) that the MOD decreed that the squadron markings had to be toned down. :question:

Great thread F3 Fanatic. There have been some superb shots posted here already - especially AndyB's.

Think RIAT a couple of weeks ago might have been my last sighting of an F3.
Here's 3 I dug up from photobucket...
