And I can remember white Valiants, Victors and Vulcans, plus Ansons, Hastings (RAF and New Zealand), Beverleys, Britannias, RCAF Comet 1s, Bristol Freighters and North Stars, Rhodesian Argonauts, Jordanian Ambassadors, French A-26 Invaders and Indian C-119 Boxcars. Oh - and B-47s at the UK SAC bases...plus F-100s at Wethersfield, Lakenheath and Woodbridge...and lots more... Oh for a digital camera back then..............

I was 30 a few weeks ago just so I don't feel left out I remember the RAF Vulcan displays from the early 90's and also going to see the "new" Tornado F3's at Coningsby.

At my first airshow I saw anti-flash white Vulcans in a scramble, but I was very young at the time. I'll be 54 in November.

At my first show I saw the P1B (Lightning prototype) "planting" sonic booms on Farnborough...

At my next show (Biggin, some years later) I saw three Mosquitos make an unannounced run-and-break into the circuit. They were those used to make the film "633 Squadron".

Sometimes being an old git has its advantages.....

I'm 67 in July.
nothing is confirmed at a show until its u/c hits the tarmac or it is running in for its display.....

I didnt give my age in my earlier reply.....
so ... I was 70 last March (had to apply for a new driving licence of course...just happy they dont ask for a retest! :grin: )
my first airshows were mid to late 1950s (at least 2 Benson BoB days) I only have very sketchy memories of them though....yet I remember well seeing the Yorks,Hastings,Valettas,Ansons,Beverleys,B36,B47,B52s etc flying around in the same era...(and mostly all seen from the same house too! :tongue: )
ah well..."there's nowt so queer as folk!" :wink:
