Mildenhall Tornado Memories

Post by paddyboy » Tue Sep 12, 2017 5:29 am

Hi Peeps :P

Finally got to post these, after having to completely re-jig 'Flickr' :@

I think these are from 1993 :blush:

My book-keeping is even worse than the quality of the shots :lol:

Really miss the ADV and lovely schemes on the display aircraft too. I don't remember the display ever including a dogfight with an Aardvark though :halo:

Always thought the F3 display was more dynamic that the GR displays, especially Fred Grundy's.
In this world there's two kinds of people, my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. You dig.

It took me a couple of passes to spot it. It was the air brake that did it. Would have made an awesome air show spectacular if they had staged a dogfight. Having said that, with the turning circles of Tornado's and F-111's it'd have performed it at St Mawgan and Leuchars air displays at the same time!

Great to see Mr W! Keep them coming mate - always good to see shots of Air Fetes past!

Hope you are keeping well?

F3s always worth a peek PB and who's he calling ugly? Better proportioned than the standard Tonka with longer legs and sadly retired before its time.
