Hi Mike,

Memories, memories...... :thumb: That was the last Mildenhall show that I attended as, due to circumstances, I entered a very lengthy lay-off from spotting. Am still regretting the lay-off. :(

One small correction - the A-6E was actually 161676/AG-501. What you quoted was an AV-8B before being rebuilt as 165391. ;)
Cheers, Bob

'84 was my first Air Fete but sadly I don't have any surviving pictures from it.

Thanks for posting as it brings back many memories.

Harrier,

If you are thinking of 1983, the F-14A was 161442/AG-110 of VF-143. One digit out on both serial and unit. :lol:

All of these photos relate to 1984 - I have just checked them against my log of the show. ;) Not that I doubted Mike.
Cheers, Bob
