There were Sabres here in Bangor when I was
a little guy, but I Don't Remember Them! :((

Would Love to see one display with a Hunter!

Must admit I really enjoyed Duxford - not really into a lot of prop a/c and they had very few jets but I think it was because it wasn't over crowded, there was plenty of space.
