WOW!
Nice work!
I've never seen double overwing pylons. Is that part of the whiff?

Good looking Lightning  :thumbsup: (but then again aren't they all? ;D)
But I can't help thinking it would have been better to use one of the more
Traditionally Middle East based Squadrons (8, 43, 208 spring to mind)
Instead of the LTF who I believe were only ever Binbrook based,

The British have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved". Soon though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross". Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the Blitz in 1940 when tea supplies ran out for three weeks

They had to test the paint scheme somewhere.........  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

Nice one!  :thumbsup:  Agree with the suqadron choice, though - yes, that's picky, but it's whifworld, after all.
Maybe seen during a training stay at Akrotiri...?

Thanks for the comments and yes they had to train and trial it somewhere before it went into squadron service.

Very very nice, I love it! Bravo, Robert!
I find it very hard to believe Academy would make a mistake like that he said sarcastically...
