RDAF SAAB Drakens

In 1987 came the Danish translated version of 'Where Is Wally/Waldo' on the bookstore(*) shelfs.
In 1992 jumped RDAF esk. (sq) 725 on the train ;-)
(Actual it's a parade in honour of the retirement of the Draken in favour of the F-16 and Wally/Waldo was chosen as it was the one with the outmost flight-hours)
What isn't to see: A Golden Griffon on the belly!

(*): Your very first Danish lesson: Bookstore says 'boghandel' ;-)

Love the Herald shots. My first ever flight was in a BEA Herald.

re #445, 8th image down, labelled VC1- EGKK in BUA colours.

If I am not mistaken this is a BAC 1-11 twinjet not a VC10 four-jet.

It looks like a VC10 to me, but I've just got back from t'pub so might be mistaken.

What's happened to that great pic of the VC10 in the sandstone-and-blue BUA colours? Was it yours, evansb?

FI 103/17

Second attempt at posting this picture. I once had it in my possession after which it was sold to a collector in New Mexico. He was an ex air-force pilot and tells me the picture is willed to the museum there when he passes away.

Fabulous pictures, Kewbick...

That Britannia nose looks a bit close for comfort!

Could you provide an approximate date for the AA B707-320B, please?

Thanks in advance,

Chris
