RAF Jaguars Final Roar

Post by FTS »

It's taken me a while to get around to finishing these. On 31 Aug 16, the Jaguar ran for the final time in RAF service at an event dedicated to the the types retirement, hosted by 238 Sqn at RAF Cosford. The Jags will continue on in service but only as ground instructional airframes, with 'liney' training now being conducted on simulators.
