New colour scheme for the RAF.


Recommended Posts

Tow have been painted up in these colours. One is the actual display aircraft and the other is the spare. They are from 1 FTS at Linton On Ouse. These days the RAF has gone back to representing older squadrons within each of the FTS's. 1 FTS has among its number, nos. 92 Sqn and 66 Sqn. 'QJ-F' is the former and represents Flt. Lt. Brian Kingcombe's aircraft and the other 'LZ-R' represents Flt. Lt. Bobby Oxpring's machine. Both pilots were Battle Of Britain aces. A fitting and apprpriate way for the modern RAF to pay tribute in this 70th anniversary. Photographer Geoffrey Lee has done an air to air shot with the two aircraft in company with the BBMF's Spitfire IIa and there are some stunning result from the shoot starting to appear. Both Tucano's and the Spitfire (among many others) will be appearing at the RAFA Shoreham on Sea Air Show in August (there are other air shows as well but then I am biased!)
