I suffered the same fate with a recent, and probably all my previous postings (haven't checked yet).

I've switched to Flickr and hope to redo my previous posts as and when.

Hope you get something sorted as I really enjoyed this thread.

Nice memories Rodders,

The Tornado is 65 Sqn/229 OCU in the good old days of shadow Squadrons for conversion units.

Hi Rodders :P

You had me totally flabbergasted there :O

When you said you had had a ransom note from 'PB', I thought you meant me :(

A lot of peeps on here just call me 'PB' rather than 'Paddyboy' :lol:

I then sussed that you meant 'Photobucket' :lol:

I had many probs with them, so always call them 'Photofu@kit' :grr:

Thanks for yet more gorgeous little Northrop pics :Wow:

In 1991 a buddy of mine was stationed at RAF Linton-on-Ouse,and he was put in charge of the station museum.He asked to make a model of a Lancaster X ,as he did not have one in the collection.I duly built the 48th Lanc and took it to Linton.Before I went on the base I was able take these photos,I was unable to take any pics while on the base,but I did have go in the Tucano simulator.

I wonder if our Dominie and Jetsteam are in that flypast from Finningley oh how I miss the long gone halcyon days of our once proud forces and the multitude of types once operated in the defence of the realm :(
