I'm trying to find out what that Camouflage scheme was on that Hawk.


It was the 70th anniversary of when 19 Squadron became the first unit to re-equip with the Spitfire I.

And yes, it was gorgeous!

My favourite Tucano has to be the poppies

Can you see the option that says "other"? Plus come on are they Lafayette Mirage 2000, Spotty Jaguar or Tiger Puma quality? No.

It's not like the Chinooks got about much publicly either :whistle:

Indeed! I saw one of them at Culdrose a couple years ago and whilst nice, there have been many much more impressive schemes.

Fred Grundy and Martin "Posion" Parker was No.229 OCU/No.65 (R) Squadron in 1990, the Tornado F3 was ZE907/AV :biggrin: which had to be handed over during the mid-season break to No.XI (C) Squadron during "Desert Shield" and No.43 (C) Squadron during "Desert Storm".

Hi Tiger Tim thank you for answering a question which I have had unanswered since 1990 I always don't recall seeing ZE907 and the only show I would have seen it at was Leuchars now I realise she wouldn't have appeared as she would be getting ready for Op Granby in the Gulf.
