Say, how about that new schemed Tornado....


The 40th anniversary scheme is on a Tornado that hasn't flown for a year :grin: Looked a complete airframe at Marham families day, so hopefully will be in the air soon :grin:

Silly but is there any chance of getting one of the Pattroille de France Alpha Jets perhaps if you can get the Red Arrow Hawk. Now that would look Amazing!!!

I'd guess this being a 'no chance' question due to being on an active airfield, but if a Red turns up, maybe a quick blat of smoke while it's lights/engine is on? :lol:

Would look stunning under the lights providing they don't repaint it by October...

The French Air Attache's office advise that the Cazaux Anniversary Alpha Jet has been repainted back into standard markings :sad: They have asked if we would ike a "normal" Alpha Jet for the line up. :biggrin:

As Phil pointed out on the last page -

Sadly no Tonkas in the short term until the runway upgrade work is carried out


so apparently no fast jets.

Wasn't sure about that - depends on how you read it... Does it mean no fast jets at all, or does it just mean no Tonka's?

I've just noticed the post about the Red Arrows Hawk, does that mean the restriction on that type at Northolt has now been permanently lifted? It would be nice to see a T2 and the Poppy Tucano.

That is the Poppy Tucano isn't it?

Well a C-130 has been there before so I would think a DC-3/C-47 would be fine! :) +1 for that vote too..
