Those must have been early days Mick!. The first 135 shot, looks like a press day, everyone crawling about the wing :) You were good to have got the 2 A10s, I'm still searching for any A10 shots from anywhere :unsure: .Look forward to more of your old stuff mate... :thumb:

The 135 was taken @ the 1983 show John. Dad and I went right down and joined those on the wing. No worries about H&S back then - and I don't remember any accidents. We got access to all areas inside. Dad even slid into the tail boom operator's position. The lady op cheerfully admitted to having knocked a few bits off an A10 recently. Happy days!

Hi Michael :P

Great memories there yet again :thumbs:

Oops: Mr. Thicko here was going to say that he had never seen an F2 Tonka pic on FC before :blush:

Thanks for posting :thumb:

Good stuff. Only managed to do one Coningsby show - the one when the Sandringham/Sunderland displayed.
