104's opposition pair

At one of the Goodwood displays in the 70's there were a pair of 104's who's display consisted of appearing from 'nowhere' (in the haze) and crossing over the airfield in opposite directions very low and very fast. We were there with the 'very low and very slow' Turbs from Redhill . Goodwood is not the largest of airfields or had radar so the their opposite direction 'crossing' in a turn overhead was quite impressive considering their turning circle must have been 'substantial'.
Also memorable for me as one of the tied Turb formation having just completed a low turn (on the inside) to get an urgent 'up' signal from the leader which prevented my contact with an errant tree.
