208 Sqn Centenary RAF Valley 01/04

Thu 07 Apr 2016, 4:07 pm

Spent a few hours at Valley on Friday for the centenary celebrations of 208 Squadron, it was great to see HHA's Hunter visiting and especially the Martin-Baker Meteor which doesn't seem to get out much. Despite the grey and rainy conditions it turned out to be a great day, although a little sad knowing that the T1 will cease flying with 208 in the next few days.

Very cool stuff. :up:

Haven't seen photos of the Martin Baker Meteor for ages! Good to see it alive and kicking. There's something wonderfully quaint/poetic about the sticker denoting it's contribution toward the F-35 project! :grin:

What a cracking looking Meteor! Well caught, looks like an awful day for it though...

Bit gutted looking at these, as I was in North Wales on Friday and had no idea this was going on. :roll:
