The ideal CB flypast?

Post by forthbridge »

Hi all

Just pondering. In an ideal world, what aircraft would you like to see together in a flypast?

As a start, I would suggest perhaps:

Spitfire, hurricane, lancaster, beaughfighter, mossie, meteor, vampire, hunter, lightning, buccaneer, and of course the three V's.

Anyone care to add?

Does that mean that Concorde wouldn't be welcome in such a flypast? ;-)

What about a FAA flight too (that's Fleet Air Arm not that yankee outfit! :lol: ) coupled with Coastal Command.

You could have Vampires, Vixens, Venoms, Buccs, Sea Hawks etc. and for the heavier side a Shack, Nimrod and Sunderland!

A pair of FAA Buccaneers buddy refuelling an RAF pair.

A four ship of Meteors
A pair of Tornado GR4's taking fuel from a Tristar
A pair of Nimrod MR2's following an MRA4
A four ship of Jaguars followed by a four ship of Hawk T1's

Well you did say in a perfect world. :welldone:

Incidentally I'm aware plenty of them weren't designed and built in Britain but if they have served in our armed forces then that's a British enough connection for me, otherwise we'd be living in a sad world of no future classics. But these are my favourites anyway and my imagination did run wild a bit. :goodman:
