Great Shots, sat in the garden (telford) and watched them hit Lands end on Radar360, wife couldnt understand what the excitment was all about - sad , me, i know.

'146 has the pilot got the 'posh' helmet on compared to the rest, or is it just his visor up :lol:

Nice shots of an interesting event. Love the first one.

I'm guessing the surrounding roads and fields were packed! :grin:

I do wonder how those 'roundels' meet the spirit of the Geneva accords! Can they really be said to identify the operating nation?

Anyway the last time the RAF received a first batch of 25-tonne fighters from Uncle Sam they made the mistake of landing at Yeovilton on the delivery flight*, where they were promptly zapped with FLY NAVY stickers. I see this time the flew on over...

* Actually that was in July 1968, half a century ago :o

Actually, the last delivery of a first batch as described above was in August 1984, direct to Wattisham for 74 Sqn.
