Waddington Air Show August 1991

Post by Vulcan44 » Fri Sep 01, 2017 7:11 pm

Hi,

Can anyone help fill in some gaps. I'm looking for the IDs of the Sentrys at Waddington in August 1991 and the Tornados coded 'DH', 'DK', 'DW' and 'DY'. All help would be appreciated.

Regards

Steve,

Thanks for the quick response. I stand corrected on 'DW', must have had my specs on upside down or else couldn't read my own writing, most likely the latter.

Regards

Chris

Would Tornado F.3 'DH' not be ZE764?

This would have been a photocall event I think, I went to the last one they had, either 93/94, there's a photo of a wee me under a Sentry :P

First Airshow was 95.

Should be - ZE364 as an F-4J(UK) and at this time was on Coltishall's dump.

In July 1991, Dad and I went to the Airshow at Scampton and I remember passing Waddington when we left going South and as well as a gaggle of new RAF Sentries including a recently arrived NATO example, and an Avro Vulcan I noticed a gaggle of Tornado F.3s at the far side (nearside to the road), would this be connected?
