Very true Asturia56,

At one time and not too long ago, solo displays by current types provided a show case of RAF capabilities at home and abroad and apart from the odd fin scheme, didn't have gaudy paint work all over them, a travelling merchandise shop and they weren't called display teams. This is another overstatement which, as you indicate, goes hand in hand with contraction and paucity. There doesn't seem to be any distinction inferred from actual display teams, such as the Red Arrows. The more hype and razzamatazz, the less there is to see. But I do like the new scheme, I'm just surprised it got past its woke test, it does look quite patriotic!
