Fantastic thread - couldn't resist throwing in a few of my own.

All oldies - and all scanned...

First off - N167F in three different guises...

At Brize Norton 28th June 1986

Image

Wattisham 24th June 1989

Image

and Mildenhall 29th May 1993

Image

NL1051S at Abingdon 12th September 1987

Image

N51JJ at Lakenheath 27th August 1989

Image

G-BIXL at Middle Wallop 17th July 1988

Image

and finally 44-73979 masquerading as "Big Beautiful Doll" at the Imperial War Museum, South Lambeth 9th July 1990.

Hope you don't mind me posting these from a couple of old photos from Alconbury '91

G-HAEC

G-SUSY (now D-FPSI in Baden Germany)

I was wondering why they both had same Sqn markings .. was it to do with the Memphis Belle movie filmed the previous year ?...just curious ))

Can't give you registrations and the like, so it isn't comprehensive in that respect, but...

TF51D 'Miss Velma' - TFC
P51D 'Big Beautiful Doll' - Rob Davies
P51D 'Janie' - Maurice Hammond
P51D 'Marinell' - Maurice Hammond
P51D 'Miss Helen' - Robs Lamplough (may not have flown since July last year)
P51D 'Jumpin' Jacques' - Peter Teichman
P51D 'Ferocious Frankie' - OFMC

Soon to return...

P51D 'Twilight Tear' - TFC

Hasn't been seen since 2007...

P51D 'Susy' - Tony Smith



i thought Jumpin Jaques was a TF51 also, but i might be mistaken
