The event took place last night and was a great success. The cab was lit up with spotlights in the hangar along with the other fantastic displays and table set up.
The tributes to the past and those who are no longer with us were read out by current members of the Sqn. This opened with a 'simulation' of a WW1 bombing raid complete with searchlights, soundtrack and much to everyones surprise some live 'explosions'. This was 78 Sqn's first action against the enemy air force.
With regards to the scheme, it was indeed down to Tony's dogged determination that this happened and despite his modesty, he deserves all the credit.
What people must remember is that this was done for 78 Squadron personnel, not for an airshow or for photographers. Therefore if anyone does feel the need to criticise or find fault then I would just ask them to remember that point.
As for the scheme being available for the new 1:48, I couldn't possibly comment...........
