Update Today?

Post by Monty »

By my reckoning there should be another update today (3 weeks since last one), however a quick look at the RAFCTE site shows the participation list as being last updated today, but with no new updates on it, does this mean there is no update today or it hasn't happened yet?

It will probably just be the one from the navy with one spare, but still 2 harriers flying is better than none in 2007 :yahoo:
Is it me or does it look like we might have a flypast(like the ones done at yeoviltan this week)?
For me highlights are French AF Rafale flying, the Swiss Hornet and RNLAF F-16 (two of the best fast jet displays IMO) all the RN flying stuff and the French Mirage F.1 and American C5 on static :yahoo:

I'm wondering whether the FAA ones are part of a mass flypast rather than a solo display plus spare. If you look there are 4 x Lynx, 4 x Merlin & 8x Sea King also down as flyers.
