Excellant set of pictures. Sadly, XV431 @ Bruggen 1974 wasn't so lucky. Witnessed the whole event on the way to the Mess for a spot of lunch.

Good point, neither do I. I believe they sent 2 from the UK for trials, one with a UHF set and one with a VHF set so they couldn't even talk to each other. Bags packed and off home.
