Good luck to them.

We continue our look around Solway Aviation Museum this week. One of the few ex-RAF Phantoms in preservation is XV406 at Solway Aviation Museum, which used to be the gate guard at RAF Carlisle. Not only is it good to see a British-spec Phantom preserved, this one is currently in the earlier camoufla...

Wow!
Stunning photos that were worth waiting for, thanks for sharing these.

Really think the Typhoon looks so much better with wing tanks than the centreline tank.

Part 1 of our visit to Solway Aviation Museum is now live at aviationanoraks.co.uk and is a study of their recently acquired Jaguar T4, XX146. At the time of our visit it was located at the edge of the car park, but has since been moved into its permanent location. https://live.staticflickr.com/6553...
