Thread: Farnborough 1949
06/02/2011 14:52:44
That bit about Farnborough brought back some memories ,I did'nt make the forties but fifties well! used to go every year on my own i was about 11 or 12 yrs and it was only a £1 to get in ,If my memory serves me well i saw the prototypes of the V Bombers ie: Vulcan,Victor ,Valiant, .Also the P1 English Electric Lightening ,and of course the Black Arrows of 111 squadron ,and on and on .They were the days definitely . TD PS And no crowd rules either and very low fly pasts ,The really did fly by the seat of their pant .

Edited By taildragger on 06/02/2011 14:54:28 O ! Just remembered my daughter gave me farnborough display vid for fathers day so i got 50 yrs of displays right from 49 up to 60s i think .
