Re: Biggin Hill Air Fair 1986

Great to see that set! It was a Classic AirFair, I also recall the Dutch F-27 in the hands of "boy" Soons doing a particularly spectacular routine that just wouldn't be allowed these days, and it was good weather!

Re: Lakenheath eagles nest

I reckon its time US Marine corps Harriers visited East Anglia, 35's and 22's will be about for decades, followed by Drones I surmise. Don't know about California dreamin' but,
