Yes, we hold a arrivals/ flypast photo event in the morning from 0900 until 1200 on camp (list is still evolving), then the families event takes place on the sports field from 1200 - 1730-ish Currently down to display are the Typhoon, Tucano and a Spitfire but it is weather dependent.

The Strikemaster and Bulldog are ex-mil and should be G-RSAF and G-DAWG respectively.

Hawk T1 was XX348/CQ but I suspect that you just forgot to type in the numbers !
Tucano T1 ZF287/287 - 72 Squadron

Other Hawk T2's noted flying were ;
ZK010/A
ZK014/E
ZK015/F
ZK018/I
ZK027/R
ZK032/FH

And for completeness Harvard 4 AJ841/G-BJST and the Blades Aerobatic Team .

Just about too correct the Hawk T1 and add the Tucano T1 serial, too see they've been added. Saved me the job!

And Texans ZM331 and 332 were ground running on the Affinity Flightline during the morning.
By 0915 on Friday, of the visitors, only the F16s and the Tucano were still present.
The Strikemaster is ex-Saudi 1120 - the Omani marks are false

F-16BM J-065 took off first at 10:19 followed a minute later by F-16AM J-871 their callsigns were the same.

Nice to see some Dutch mil at Valley again.
Both 322 Sqn based Leeuwarden of course (Ljouwerd in Friesian) with Parrot on sqn badge "Polly Grey", hence callsign.

Cheers
