I know this is a very long shot, can anyone help me please with serial numbers of the following flight,
seen overhead Newquay ( Cornwall ) at about 1300hrs westbound were a flight of four A-10s as Drat 21 22 23 24 all in close formation, I believe they were MB coded from 355TFS 354TFW, the date of this was 13-5-87, any help would be great,
Thanks,
Rob
