1970's RAF Aerobatics films on YouTube

Hi Guys,

I'm still searching for Info on Linton Gin & The Linton Blades.

During my search I recently bought some 8mm films off eBay. I have loaded them onto YouTube



Chipmunks from Church Fenton - Clearly from 1972 as this was the only year with 1 RAF & 1 Navy Pilot




Jet Provosts from Little Rsssington - Probably 1972 ( Most others seem to be '72 ) due to the inclusion of Capt R. Lord ( USAF ) , he was also a member of the '73 team so there's a chance the film is from '73




Jet Provosts from RAF College, Cranwell . In this case I have no positive way to identify the year




Jet Provosts from RAF College of Air Warfare ( Manby ). This time you can clearly see all the memebers of the 1972 team. There is some great inverted flying in this film.




Jet Provosts from 3FTS, RAF Leeming In this case I have no positive way to identify the year




Jet Provosts from 1FTS, Linton on Ouse This time you can clearly see all the members of the 1972 team.




Again, sorry, I have no positive way to identify the year.


Enjoy the films.

All the Best
Steve

Happy nostalgia! I recognise all four team members of the Macaws, but can only remember the names of Brian Hoskins and Pete Diggance. Pete took over the lead from Brian when he was posted to Buccs at Honington, and of course Brian subsequently led the Red Arrows and the Black Seahawks display teams.

Red Arrows video looks like 1975 or 76?
