What a fantastic restoration :clap: Just how a Jaguar should look!! Nice shots too Stu :smile:

Having lived 5 miles out on the approach to runway 04 at Coltishall between 1975-96 this is how I expect to see a Jaguar, none of that grey stuff or that awful gloss black they've been painting them in at Cosford and Cranwell of late, they should have retained the camo scheme (which they had been in for years at both locations). Yes I know the reasons behind the gloss black, but I still don't like it!

Saw this on facebook, but your pictures with the typical Suffolk base backdrop gives the subject some justice. Nice shots Stu :clap: :clap:
Cheers,

Sorry for asking such a silly question
