Re: Exercises in the 80s, help needed

If this is any help, why don't you guys purchase the Newly Issued BARG - DVD - 1
It covers the years - 1957 - 1981 and I think the others are also still available

Re: RAF Marham 14-09-2020

well I was on the 24end and whilst I got some lift-out shots similiar to your's but not as good, I did'nt do that well on the 24/landing either
