Southern France?

CGB has it. C160ís. I think I counted 17 on the pans awaiting dismantling. Now, of course, A400ís and a few C130s in the main apron.

Over to you.

Well chaps, I have flown this fabulous aeroplane from all the last three and also the challenge.

You are all still too far north.

DANGER - war story.

Just left of the centreline of 24L and not far from the threshold was a church.

A competition developed to turn inside the church and successfully land the jet.

The Lightning F3 (the GT model) needed one engine in burner during the latter phase of the turn, needed well in excess of 60 degrees of bank and was in fairly deep buffet all the way. Probably only a Lightning could do it.

Some of us managed it.
