Re: Cleethorpes Beaufighter Wreckage

Which is interesting, as I assume its the same one that got a mention in the letters page of Flypast back in the late 80s.

I think they blew it up in the late 60s. It then got buried in the sands again over time.

Cool pics as usual.

I was just getting used to stuff flying around at the tender age of 5 then.

Re: Indra Dhanush 2007

I can remember them departing living just down the road at the time, specifically as I was advised they were going early.

First wave and IL-78 were taxiing out at about 06.30 from memory.

Re: RAF Tucano preservation?

Rather depends on what the disposal service agency does. It is/was a popular airframe in the USA, and previous disposals have mostly gone across the pond.

I don't think what is left of Shorts/Bombardier would want them NAM Updater.

Perhaps you can persuade Northrop Grumman to restart production....


Alas I suspect they have other plans, Not least the B-21. And I suspect you have as much chance of that being exported as the UK buying Unicorns

Re: Special Scheme Tonka

When 9 Sqn reformed at Honington in 1982, they had single letter codes, only taking up the A* prefix upon moving to Bruggen.

The entire fleet went numerical in 2006.

Actually no published photographers got the chance the last time when they had the 5 special Tonkas. The occasion when the 40th Anniversary, 9,12,15 and 31 Sqn 100years jets all got together in formation was for the RAF/MoD, and that was on the day two of them went to RTP.
