It may have only flown on one of the two days, did you go both days or just the one? This was from the Saturday.

Some Jaffas in here- Pete's head on break shot of the Dakota and <insert name of type here :oops: >; Phil's mixed de Havillands; and Derek's Haek/Blackbird and Mossie/Blenheim shots being particularly special.

i have some info on the Sr71 Hawk combo, The Hawk was a photoship for the BBCs coverage of that airshow. So as it was not flying on the show days then i think it was one of the weekdays instead.
Start every day with a smile!

I know this is cheating really, but this is still the strangest formation I ever saw. In Wales.

Image

I very much enjoyed this one. In Wales too as it happens.

Image

And this one isn't really a formation. In mid-Atlantic.

Image

Apologies to those who remember them.
