(forgot the prop blur)

sorry about the lack of variety - there was only about 60+ different types to choose from!! - Well done RIAT :)

Nice set Mike. Actually the 'Airfix sticker' seems to suit the JP better than most - possibly because of colour co-ordination. However my vote goes to the Hunter in that amazing scheme which goes to show that a classic design defies time. Hats off to Hawker Hunter Aviation for giving it a new look.

Thanks for taking the time

I like the updated hunter - painted in a Marham painT shop I was told?

I thought the Hunter was fantastic in that scheme too. Great set of shots there aswell.Been looking for a selection of Monday stuff, now we have them.

Cheers

Thank you

A lot of stuff is too high from the westend and you can hear a small cheer ripple round when something stays low such as the German Transall and the lovely Pakistan Hercules. But I think it is quieter and some nice taxi shots can be had.

I am looking forward to seeing shots from the FRIAT stand

Good Job Marham then! Rare to see a Hunter at all post Shoreham. Then to see that. It's like seeing a new type. Just hoping they'll have another Scampton show next year so that I can get to see it in the metal.
