Its eyecatching but it ain't nice. What is the starboard wing about? Last year's traditional tiger was much better.

I don't like that at all. It's like it was laser printed, began the tiger scheme perfectly and then went 'ahhh screw it default settings'.

Twice a year. You knew there was a Vulcan bomber there before you moved into the area…

Good find, but this probably belongs in Historic Aviation sub-forum. There’s a “Historic Interesting Internet” thread too. Might be worth sticking it in there for posterity. 👍🏻

Translation, if I may:
During a high altitude flight (FL500 here), the afterburner flames are blue, indicating a complete combustion.
Very High Altitude flight does have a tactical interest, as it enables to lengthen the weapons range. It is interesting in some situations.

Couteau team. I wouldn’t normally share stuff like that, but is that a special tail on the Mirage 2000D behind? Not sure if it’s new or not.

Certainly looks new, but also very subdued. They've still got nothing better to do RIAT weekend you know!

Did well to get that down in more or less one piece. Very unpleasant.

Looks better than the German Eufi, cue calls for Creedence Clearwater Revival to appear at RIAT instead of the German Tiger Band!
