No idea. But for sure if you say 'B17' you aren't talking about anything built in the US of A.

There's a global surfeit of apostrophes ("apostrophe's"), so use them whenever you can. You'll be helping a good cause.

Thank goodness for that: we have an answer that will hopefully put an end to "You don't mean Eastleigh?" suggestions. An interesting thread when you sift the wheat from chaff.

Used to see it often in the 1970s - made a quite distinctive sound, a bit like a Cessna 337 if memory serves. Last time I saw it was (I think) at a PFA rally at Henstridge, circa 1979. I hadn't...

F-104. It's a musical instrument! Or should I say, the J-79 in an F-104. The combination made a unique, never-to-be-forgotten sound. Or range of sounds.

I think when sagindragin said, "do you think i have not done that", he meant that he'd already had a good Google. The question was can anyone confirm the s/n of YQ-X, which was allotted to an F.Mk.I...

Strange that - it is indeed an "F-96" but by the time of the formation would have been officially an F-84F for up to five years. Strange too that the RF-84F (RF-96) got its correct title.
