Re: Unidentified Angus Tueday 8/6

That's exactly what it was, 177702 flew down the coast at about 2,000' before turning inland, routing straight over Leuchars and then into Edinburgh.
It would have been in the Montrose area at around 13.10.

Re: UK G7 2021- Tittle Tattle

I'm fairly sure that fully refuelling it at Mildenhall would have taken it over it's maximum landing weight, so it would have had to dump fuel before landing at Newquay!

Re: Apache AH1 vs AH-64E, 3rd June 2021.

The AH-64Es with the ZM serials are new-builds with some parts taken from the old AH1s that have been reduced to produce in the US.

Got it, it was a Monday morning visitor arrived on the 15th July? ;) It's on the official BARG checklist that I bought at the show on the Saturday morning, so it must have arrived on one of the arrivals days. Not a mis-read of 26+66 either as that's the one furthest away in my own photo :- https://...

Great shots of a wonderful Air Tattoo, Andy. :thumb:

I've got 10 German Starfighters in the log, I think you're missing TF-104G 27+79 & F-104G 26+60, both of MFG2, that were over by the hangars but could have actually been in a hangar when you were over there.
