RAF new camouflage Scheme

This flew over our rear garden this afternoon. Perhaps it was looking for the back passage to the Western Approaches.

Gay Pride marches one week luvin' em to death the next!

It ain't called a cock-pit for nothing.

Nice link, good cause, but....!!

Hopefully our warships will remain battleship grey!

I said to the RAF pilot, "Could you kill a man?"

He puckered his lips and replied, "Eventually!"

Typical, ex-Navy so obviously you'd have to have some sort of comment about the RAF

I do think the first two posts are a bit disrespectful though. The RAF have painted the aircraft to represent and support a very good cause, which has been mocked.

I assume it was said in jest, but even still I think it was a touch over the line.

Still prefer this to the invisible livery so widely embraced of late

Sooooo, the OP doesn't like a military aircraft painted in an eye catching scheme for publicity purposes, may not have recognised the RAFBF logo on the jet (which would partly give a clue as to why it carries the design) and gives the impression of being homophobic by the schoolboy standard "gay" references. Welcome to the 50's chappie.
