Re: F16 Demo Team breaks another jet!

German Tornado at Leuchars Friday practice way back when, popped the panel behind the cockpit. Wonder why there wasnt a huge stooshie about it back then! Arabest, Geoff. Because a) we found such things a bit exciting and b) with no social media, there were no keyboard warriors to bang on about it.

Very nice selection. Shows how boring the RAF has become regarding special schemes.

A few wearing civil markings built they all started life with USAAC serials. 1. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48025144058_ba33...
