At last found it, old air show lineup

Postby Dougs » Fri Feb 07, 2014 8:49 pm

I have searched for years to find which year I went to my first proper airshow I knew it was on my birthday and I knew it was in the 80's and it was in Leicester but it's taken years to find any reference to it.
I remember it so well because of the line up just don't see aircraft like this lot anymore

Imagine this lineup today :-o
I feel pretty lucky to have seen them when I did and confirm it was XL 426 that I saw display so I know for sure I have seen two vulcans fly not just 558
Sorry I can't put the photo up but it's not mine, but follow the link above and have a trawl through some great aircraft flew that day :)
