Hi Gang;

Acko mentions the Vulcan and Harrier as Cold War icons.
Arguably, the same could be said for Phantom, Buccaneer, Victor, Shackleton and the (proper) Lightning.

And yes Acko.....they were all still in service when I joined.
That's a lot of Pimm's ago!!!

Later,
Stu in OOMN

A late addition to this thread but I've been on holiday and had lost internet at home for a while, so better late than never.......

I came across this video presentation from NATS and thought I'd post it here for all the aviation enthusiasts. I found it fascinating, an aerial ballet where 100 aircraft are choreographed to appear centre stage at 30 second intervals.
