Jetscream32, ignore the rather puerile jibes - good to know that you enjoyed watching fast jets doing what they do best!

In my Somerset days, after the Sea Venoms and Seahawks had left service, it was mainly Vixens, Hunters and the occasional Scimitar - although 892's Phantoms did drop the odd boom now and again!

Hope you'll see more soon - faster and lower. Maybe the F-35B will also grace the land of Scrumpy and Western erelong!
