Thanks... very clever. Brings back memories as that was the first Farnborough Air Show I attended as a kid...

Brilliant - I had forgotten how many of the pilots I met as I went through training and onto my first squadron - and one was my second station commander in my second career.

Very well done - must have taken a huge amount of effort. Only one nit-pick - at the 9:30 mark, only 21 pilots listed. Missing one seems to be Al Brindle (http://www.pprune.org/aviation-history-nostalgia/421527-names-pilots-22-hunter-loop.html) flying XF515.

Peter Latham assumed command of 111 Squadron in October 1958 and the mention of him being a member of the first post war jet aerobatic team is not strictly correct. Although he was a member of the 263 (Meteor) Squadron team which displayed at the RAF Display in 1950, the title of "TheWorld's First Jet Formation Aerobatic Team" belongs to No.54 (Vampire) Squadron at Odiham in 1947, led by Sqn Ldr Mike Lyne. Finally, will someone tell what is the significance of the four yellow-tailed Meteors? The squadron's 'A' and 'B' Flight Commanders had red and blue rudders, respectively, so is this new information - or artistic licence?
