I could enthuse forever about the Starfighter and
Kelly "Clean Sheet Of Paper" Johnson....

What a revelation the F-104 must have been when
it first flew FIFTY EIGHT YEARS AGO B-)

The fighter jocks in Korea told Kelly what they
wanted, and he delivered......

Thanks Minty

Interesting to see the ICE CREAM VAN and the HOT DOG VAN under the approach in the Sunday Video! :-o

Great video, but as I said earlier why wasn't this tried before now?

Also Damian B posted on VTTS, that this year's displays seem to be getting further and further away from the crowdline. From this evidence I have to agree. 558 looked to be 'displaying/positioning' over the Lechlade area for much of the time. ;)

Yes, I know all the black humo(u)r
associated with the Starfighters in
Germany, but it's funny how they
still LOVE that aircraft over there ;)

Lots of aircraft have black eyes for
in-service failures (... some British ones,
it must be mentioned...) but you can't
explore the limits of what's possible
aerodynamically without the element
of danger and possible death :(

That's just what it is, and the Starfighter
was a great leap forward!

Funny seeing MW without a moustache but with a few extra pounds.

I have supported XH558 since she was with the VDF but if someone had said let's get Lusty Lindy flying (for example) I would have been even poorer than I am today!!!

imho the Victor is the most photogenic aircraft ever. The SR71 is awesome but damn near impossible to photograph (well). I like the stories from Nellis and GW1 when a lot of Yanks, who saw the Victor for the first time, couldn't believe that it was over 40 years old..

Don't you just love what the 'Cold War' did for UK military aviation?
