Re: RIP Brexit

I do have some sympathy for the PM however the Government has had over two years to arrive at this impasse.

Lovely set

Like many I did see most of the WR Phantoms but hardly saw any of them actually moving so it is nice to see them in action

I hope they keep the last RAF flight aircraft: ZA463 was also a Desert Storm jet.

Re: ZA463 Marham 74 - The Last RAF Tornado flight?

Thanks

Yes Captain Haddock ( never thought I would be typing that in this life!) It was great to see a Tornado at ' Full Chat' as someone else on succinctly put it. Normally the high light for me was watching the afterburner take off - going to miss the roar of the engines and smell of the fumes!

No Polish Flankers is a shame. The USAF F-16 should be over soon hopefully.

ZA463 Marham 74 - The Last RAF Tornado flight?

Went to Marham on Thursday 14 March 2019 to watch what is apparently the last flight of a RAF Tornado. As usual I was in the wrong position from the point of view of the sun but it was still well worth watching MARHAM 74 in ZA463 putting the GR4 through its paces for the last time. (Marham 74 was al...

Very good

I think I saw a group of photographers positioned for banking shots along the track at the 19 approach end.

Did you go up for the last flight on Thursday - Marham 74 did some awesome fast passes , I was too far away to get decent shots but it was great to witness.

They should shut the doors and not let them out until they sort out Brexit once and for all.

On the contrary I think think Parliament should have a 3 week recess so we come out on the 29 March as per the current law and then we can all get on with day to day life.

ZA463 Marham 74 back on the deck for the final time at 15:26

That last flypast and climb was really fast and low , probably the fastest I can remember seeing from any jet at that low level.
