You've missed the F-16 two seater listed above , FB-20 . I can add the flight-line Hawk codes if anyone needs them ?

Five Hawks flew between 14:55 and 15:50 as a 4-ship then a 5-ship flypast. These were XX345/CB, XX191/CC, XX332/CD, XX203/CF and XX284/CN.

During the last two weeks we have had 5 sips and 7 ships it seems some of the Hawk pilots are praticing formation flying gettig closer and closer together may be wrong but it seems they are not confident

12:40 : Hawk role demo and airfield attack, show of force by Savage Flight ;
XX345/CB , XX191/CC , XX332/CD and XX284/CN

15:20-15:50 : HRH and General Salute Flypast by Aggressor Flight ;
as above plus XX203/CF

Spares ships on the flight-line were ; XX246/CA with JFACTSU logo on tail ,XX348/348 ex-208 Squadron and XX350/D ex-208 special colours in drab olive . Due to the strong winds the Diamond Nine flypast was cancelled which meant that the centenary '100 Squadron - 100 Years' Hawk XX285/CK remained in the hangar . Sadly !

A pair of Hawks were over the house here in Ripon a couple of times AM and then ca 1500 five followed by two went over together.

Thanks Dave for confirmation of the flightline. I believe CF was missed from the log posted earlier and I was wondering if I'd screwed up!

Seems like more bluster than lustre, did any one put a photo of the flypast on?
