Patrouille de France Into Brize Norton on Monday 15/6/20

Hello all.

I was sent a message earlier about the arrival into Brize Norton on Monday of the Patrouille de France. Apparently arriving around 09.30 ish.

Can anyone confirm this please?

Many thanks in advance.

Absolutely loved the Belkan War. Mainly playing HAWX now, but tempting to go back to Ace Combat. All on Playstation, no Xbox. Xbox is the spawn of the devil :lol: :ninja:
I concur.... :D :D

Hey Jimmy02.

Well it would be £16 inc P&P to the USA. PM if you're interested as I've only got a few of those patches left.

Thank you.

Re: ITV series - Fighter Pilot, the real Top Gun

Looks interesting.

There will be a far better documentary though, on the BBC, which follows Cdr Nathan Gray in America through the testing phase of F-35B, and follows him out to HMSQE for the first every carrier landing.

Re: Insurance

The Jordanian's only had £30 mil insurance. That's why they didn't fly this year at Yeovilton.

Re: Has anyone else heard this story and is it true or even possible?

I heard the tale back in the '70s from someone who had been in RAF. and that it was first done in the very early days of the Canberra (possibly may even have helped the US decide to buy some).
