That was quick Laughing

There was some sort of jubileum the other year and all of these did several passes over our house. You´d think that is all the jets they produced themselves but one is missing....

-en on the end of a word is the swedish for -the- So:

The Lance
The Dragon
105 Rolling Eyes
GripEN... The Griffen
ViggEN....The Vigg (tufted duck)
Tunnan... The Barrel, at the back Wink (-an instead of -en denotes the feminine form of -the- as opposed to the masculine -en). This one is the only one in the world still flying.

Nice to see the VC 10. On 1st August 1972 I took one of these from Brize Norton to Akitiri. 6 month posting with UNFICP Aviation Flight in Nicosia. We had 4 Sioux helicopters. Had a nice time Wink

Re the VC10 - I live under the flight path for Birmingham Airport and a couple of times this year I have seen a VC10 (RAF) going in to land there. It is used as a flying ambulance and whilst it is lovely to see one and 'hear' one (what a noisy thing it is) it is the contents of it, the wounded soldiers from Afghanistan, that concerns me.
