Had an aged spec aircrew sqn ldr working for me once (er - not that aged - four years younger than I am now ) who had flown a Meteor in the Coronation Flypast.

Told some wonderful tales about it - I particularly remember him telling of more than one Sabre that flamed out and left the mega-formation - only to rejoin after a successful re-light! What wonderful spirit, which is sadly unimaginable today.
