I was passing the fighter base at Williamtown, which is near my home today and called in to have a look but there was nothing flying, well it was Sunday, all
the pilots would be in church praying that the government would not go through with the Super Hornet purchase. Anyway there were a few old veterans on display plus some wartime and post war shots of the base and its aircraft.
It may be of interest to some of you.
Dumkopf forgot to check his picture size and resolution didn't he, oh well, here they are.

Some of the exhibits looked a little sad and in need of some
loving care but this Sabre seemed positively overjoyed to see me. grinning like a cheshire cat.

Nice! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

That reminds me of Vampires doing strafing runs on a target in a lake near a road in Switserland back in the 70's http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif
