    Thanks, although we didn't know it at the time we were watching the last Tornado F-3 display. Just as well they went out in style.

    That was the last Tornado F-3 display? I didn't know that, I feel honoured to have seen it, they did go out in style!

    Great shots Chris, I like the Tornado shots as well (also the Eurofighter and F-16 shots).

    I might add some more of my photos in here if that is OK with you Chris, although none are as good as yours.

    Got to say i was a bit dissapointed with the Delta Jets Trio. Nice to see but having seen two great Hunter demo's (Miss Demeanour and XE601) i was expecting more.

    On the plus side though the A-26 and Spitfire XVIII were fantastic. The Invader reminded me of the Mosquito displays we used to see.

    I agree completely. The P-51 was good also, although it still doesn't make up for the fact that the BBMF didn't turn up.
