Why No Jaguar Pin in RAFA's Goodies for Sale?

Recently manned a RAFA stand at our mayoral parade (cancelled as police couldn't find the manpower to supervise the event) Ex Jag armourer most miffed he couldn't find a Jag badge/pin whilst all the other fast jet types are represented. Protest friends, write letters,badger your MP cry foul for RAFA admit that our favourite constant thrust variable noise machine has indeed been overlooked. A pox on them I say insist this slur is on our estucheon is put right.

Jaguar items are unlikely to be found mixed in with Fast Jet stuff.

Bluntie cries 'Foul'. What is your definition of 'Fast Jet'? What part of fast, don't you understand? I have flown Jaguar at low level at 700 knots.

700kts is almost the speed you can get a bite from the Jaguar guys.😀

I think the OP accidently moved thr throttles to "Loud".

Incidently - did you mean 700kts or 700mph? The latter I could believe, but the former I struggle with.

A Jaguar at 700kts is just trying to get airborne.

It was proabably still trying to catch up with the rest of them... you should have told him to buy the Phantom one, as it like this thread, shot the Jag down.

Get a life guys - if you flew it, you loved it, the rest of you ill informed gainsayers don't appreciate the contribution this aircraft made to the Royal Air Force.

We could laugh at ourselves too though - as once found in a 700 ' Aircraft appears underpowered ' cleared with ' no fault found, aircraft is a Jaguar '

Jag Rigger is correct. We were mostly in the bar with all our Jaguars serviceable for the morning when all the other fast jet crews were still trying to get one of theirs serviceable.

Fascinating, one in silver and one in bronze, no first place gold for them.

I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

I see the Jaguar could carry 2x600lb nukes, do Mach 1.6 at 36,000ft, ceiling at 45,000, and a lo lo lo range of 490kts.

Of course wiki isn't always accurate.
