I remember the Blue Angels displaying at Yeovilton in 1964 ; they used either Tigers with a Cougar as a "spare" , or the other way around !! Anyway ,I thought that they were all quite mad , but more exciting than the Red Arrows' Gnats or the Red Pelicans JPs !!
At the time , I was in the "Royal Guard" for Prince Philip ; I wonder if there are any more "survivors" out there ??
Ex- 766 NAS "pinkie" !!
Saw the first show by the Reds, last Sunday at Duxford, Was a very good performance and back to a 9 ship formation, most of the different airforce teams are very good and each have their own speciality. I have pics of quite a few, from the South Koreans to the Saudi's etc.
