Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2018 Discussion Thread

So do you complain to all those events about comparing the past with the present? At one time IAT's only occurred every two years, maybe the time has come to revert to that formula.

Thank goodness it, and Wimbledon, are now all over, and we can now return to normality. Well done Les Diables Rouges, another small country that made mincemeat of larger ones (one twice :Oops: ). A peaceful day tomorrow.

Re: World Cup Final .....

Definitely would not be a once in a life time event, watched a good England team win in 1966. Hopefully there will be something more entertaining on an alternative channel :grr:

ZG773 was my 371st RAF Tornado serial

I missed a few written off etc but can you believe the RAF must of had roughly 400 Tornados at one point!

( Is ZD892 still in shawbury)
According to the European Air Forces Directory ZD892 went to Leeming for RTP in September 2012.

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2018 Discussion Thread

Interestingly Japan is one of the countries attending the Bastille Day festivities in Paris on 14 July. No announcement has been made in respect of that as to whether an aircraft is taking part, yet.
