Hello Iconic.

Postby Ipso » Fri Jun 01, 2012 2:31 am

Hi Everyone.

Been a lurker here for a while having been on the VTTS forum previously. Expect my story is much the same as most,enjoyed mainly military aviation from a youngster. Consider myself fortunate to have experienced the RAF's swansong just before the end of the cold war.

Regards Phill

HI Phill, Welcome :)

I assume from your pictures of Mudeford Quay, you're from my neck of the woods?

Welcome along Phill - like you I was lucky to witness the end of the Cold War Aviation scene - so much variety in those days with so many "Iconic Aircraft" to be seen. Be good to hear your memories of the time :)
