I'm struggling to find the 2 French Alpha Jets listed here. Certainly not on the 1st page, unless I'm blind.
Also, was the flying Bo-105 parked behind or near the AH-64 please?

Thanks

Hello Robin

The BBMF on Saturday was Spitfire P7350 & Hurricane LF363.The Osprey was 12-0064.The Mustang was unable to take part in the Heritage Flight as the wind preventing it from getting airborne.

Thanks for that,they screamed over Cirencester one with its gear down and the other with it up.
Thought they where Rafales,only saw them for a few seconds.
Come to think of it I had them on the scanner talking about the problem.
