They certainly do. All ten of them have a unique name.

I also leaned how to tell the difference between the old King Air and the new "GT". It literally has a go faster stripe!

What a lovely set. The cats look beautiful.

Out of curiosity (and I know realistically they will never fly again) how far from airworthy are they?

I asked the same question yesterday. I was told that IF they got enough speed up to make it airborne (they have has reheat removed) then they would fly now, however the flight control surfaces are so far behind being serviced that it would either crash after an input of direction or it would crash on attempting to land. But as far as getting up and the wings not falling off, they theoretically could, but it would end VERY badly!

Great shots, given the conditions. Love the stance of the Jags on the ground with the airbrakes out.

Can you imagine how much money they would raise for the RAFBF if they did a day and a night photoshoot of all Jags outside?

It's my idea so I want to be first in the queue :lol:
