Great work by all three services involved in the flypast, but why oh why can't the BBC comment accurately? Huw Edwards made an absolute horlicks of the entire flypast, ignoring the Texans, describing...

Sir Erik Bennett

I apologise for the length of this thread, but it is an honest, first-hand account of attaining nearly 88000ft! While on 74 Sqn at Tengah 1968-71 I had an urge to try to find the maximum altitude a...

We'll drink to the glory of the Reich.
No longer will we tremble,
At England's military might.

228 OCU History

A2QFI - don't ever say 'John Walmsley's history of 228 OCU' - it was produced by Gordoon Moulds, who later produced a similarly excellent book on 226 OCU when it operated the mighty Lightning.
