Phantoms 43 Sqn & 92 Sqn at Valley, 1980s

Post by STCAAMEkid »

Evening all,
Here are recent scans from negatives (43, 1986) and positives (92, 1991) of our long departed FG1s and FGR2s respectively visiting the beautiful Isle of Anglesey for their annual Missile Practice Camp detachment. Sadly this was the final MPC for 92 with Phantoms.
I hope they're of interest to the Tomb phanatics amongst you,
Cheers for now,
Phil

I think the term Phantastic comes to mind. Much missed machine.

Some nice memories there.

The first Phantom in your photos, FG1 XT860 of 43 Squadron crashed into the North Sea on the 20th April 1988 during an Exercise Elder Forest mission from Leuchars.
