Nice Jon, the MIG-23 the star for me. Shame only 16 P51s out of 30 promised for you.

Anyone know the history of the Mig-23? Looks very interesting!

Also, we had the same issue in 2007 at Columbus, OH with Mustangs - 100+ promised, crappy weather the day before curtailed that, but we still got 77 on the day, which is far and away the most of 1 aircraft type I've ever seen in one place at the same time (OK, apart from AMARC/AMARG, but that doesn't really count!)

Hi Matt......no, they seemed to get the P-8 stuck on the taxiway and weren't quite sure what to do with it!
