Re: 74 SQUADRON

Thanks, James! I was lucky enough, whilst detached to Leuchars as part of TTTE's Operation Winter Venture back in 1987, to get a ride on a 101 Sqn VC-10 (Coded J) up off the east coast of Scotland. Some of you will have seen these before. I make no apologies for the borders, I like them, and can't b...

Re: RIAT 2007 Indian Air Force time !

Nice reminders, matey.

That was the first show I did as a punter after 13 years on the Engineering Team (The Evil Necessity!).

Think I wizzed round for photos, then spent rest of the show at the Brazilian Herc with the team......I was terribly, terribly drunk...... :Oops:
