never thought of it like that mate, very true though
anybody have any thoughts on how weathered Hep Cat may have been, its hard to tell from the pictures i've seen !
Good going Karl - As far as weathering goes you can go as far as you want I would say. It was the aircraft of the squadron CO, first Tolhurst and then Thomson. In the formation shot it appears to be either 'fresh' or to have been 'waxed' for a bit of extra speed, so it might have been kept in better nick than the other squadron aircraft. By the time they finished their stint in the islands they were all a bit worse for wear.8)
