    They had an old Lancaster in the transport museum in Auckland. Not as big as I expected.

    I was in the cadets with a bloke who went on to lead the Arrows - and I've had a very-serious-work-essential/jolly in a Hawk. Sadly however I won't be attending, as it's POETS day, and I knock off at 12.... :thumbs:

    Planned for the Mall on Tuesday 10 July at 1300BST.

    Aircraft will formate over The Wash, The North Sea and Southwold, Suffolk and Southend from 1145BST onwards then route Swaffham-Thetford-Colchester to London and overfly Buckingham Palace. Subsequent dispersal will occur to the south and west of London variously over Kent, Surrey, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire.

    Current rumour is that there are to be 109 aircraft involved (100 plus the Red Arrows).

    Cessna 172 only for me these days. Last year I did have the chance of a flight in an RAAF Hawk 127 and I thought, just one last time... In the end I respected the spousal three line whip and didn't do it. If the offer had been for stick time in an F/A-18F I'd be single now.

    Don't worry. They probably won't kill anyone that day.

    Looking forward to this.

    Of course it is. It's cool af. Superb testaments to engineering and all the progress that's been made as a result of the science behind their development.

    You and me should go watch them together :)

    LynnDoyleCooper Their heads on sticks. That'll teach 'em.

    I think they might need to update their testimonials page...
