Quote from: rickshaw on January 31, 2019, 06:46:24 PMAs a kid, the ABC downunder in the 1960s-70s used to show each year, a Farnborough show on TV. I always particularly liked the Lightnings simulating a QRA - screaming down the runway and then climbing vertically, straight up, usually into the cloudcover. The noise from the twin Avons was tremendous and the speed was breath taking! I just wish I could have seen it for real.
