Let's kick-off with a cover shot - a fine US mag with a good article on the last B29 raid.

An old mag cover showing a Grumman Tracker

A Martin Baker ad from the 60s, ironic use of Vulcan since only 2 of the crew got MB seats! The place to see a live Vulcan doing ground runs - Bruntingthorpe The first true dedicated gunship helo - the Cobra

WW SM cover

Sawn-off veteran - I presume this is a fire-training plane at Gatwick in late 80s... Texas trip in 88 - view from the AA DC10 Shuttleworth display ad - never been there funnily enough. Cranfield Lightning line up in the early 90s, only the T5 remains...

Wild Weasel special issue, one of my favourite a/c

It's about time we included pix of the F20 Tigershark - I saw the display at Farnborough in 83, awesome... what a shame all around.. How could we resist such performance? Political assassination methinks. The sting of the F20 - Sparrows and Sidewinders (+ cannon). At Farnboro the wingtips carried smoke gennerators, will try to find the pix and put them up. There's not much on the web on the F20, shame.

Back to the heydays, a Lightning awaits IFR from a Victor

- from a postcard.

One from a 60s era mag showing a Kestrel/Harrier IFR from a white Victor.
