Re: 48hr Photo Comp: A-10

One of the earliest to be seen in the UK, this arrived at the 1977 Tattoo and had some considerable novelty value as the A-10 had only just started operational service. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50697678842_74eac89c1b_o.jpg A-10A 75-0293 by Andrew Shaw , on Flickr Seen here at the 1980 sho...

Re: Cutting edge classics - Tommy at Yeovil
