    Nice to see this machine in the air again. I remember them in service at Yeovilton along with the Sea Vampires and Venoms!

    Day started bright but went to r~#@*&t after lunch and rained so display was much curtailed . Cloud came down to 2000 and that was that ! This and a few more to be loaded was all I could get . Glad you all like this aircraft , one of my favourites , watched them off Kilve practice bombing before attacking the Torrey canyon back in the sixties .

    What is the tail number on this aircraft? XS? In 899 mode, as to noise, try being underneath to check when the bleed band moves, engine is over 90%, now that IS loud.

    Hertsman you must be older than you look, I don’t recall Vampire and Venom Squadrons operating at the same time as Sea Vixens, Scimitars and laterly Buccaneers, but that was all.

    Yes! the Torrey Canyon, a mixture of 766 and some other Squadrons, cannot remember which ones were on shore at Yeovilton at the time, whoever was available; as it was, if I recall correctly, around Christmas/New Year.

    Lost a few friends in these beasts.

  • Sorry , only got the two shots and neither have the tail number . hope it appears next season .
    Regards Phil.
