Great Photos.

Its a real pity that there was so little media coverage of this. All we got was a few minutes on BBC Scotland.

Thanks gill for posting these images a fitting tribute to the F3. The first one is very atmospheric, I also like the knife edge pass shot. But the whole set is classy. :clap:

With Typhoons going on deployment to police Libya will they have enough fighters to maintain home QRA without 111? Lets hope for a stay of execution. With the world going to hell in a handbasket any sane government would think twice about continuing to slash defence...... we do not however have a sane government. :loser:

Nice pics BTW. Wish I could make it up there.

I suspect for the moment Coningsby will be providing Typhoons against Mr G.

Chrisward123, regarding your last glimpse of a flying F.3, mine was ZE734 JU flying along side a Spitfire and a Typhoon at Leuchars last year, unfortunately had to leave before the formation finale - due traffic etc - .

Any news of what happened today? Now I discover I didn't only miss the Disbandment Parade but now I hear there's(been) a Russian Il-96 at Edinburgh - oh the pitfalls of work...............

I served as a National Serviceman with 111 Squadron as a photographer, processing the gun camera films during 1953 to 1955 at North Weald. They were great times with great Pilots. I remember Squadron Leader Topp as a remarkable Pilot. I still have my original Squadron Blazer badge and will always wear it with pride.
Long live the memory of Treble One.
