2018 RIAT-100 yrs of the RAF. Flypast list

Postby C24 » Mon Jul 24, 2017 4:43 pm

:halo:
Head in the clouds, perhaps but some of you may wish to have a laugh and join in.
:whistle:
The aim of the game is to compile a list of aircraft that have been on charge since the 1st April, 1918; for each type indicate where an example is located in this country & whether it is still flying or just static.

For starters, I'll offer the Hind? K7985 from the Shuttleworth collection which is still in flying condition.

:roll:

P.s. If we reach 100 perhaps the organisers might put on a 100 aircraft flypast.

The single seat Gnat under rebuild at North Weald. Didn't see service, but DID fly in R.A.F. colours. For static of course.
