RNLAF F-16A

A 'top drawer' display was given by this F-16A of the Royal Netherlands Air Force.

SAAB S-35 Draken

Good support was given by other NATO countries with aircraft such as this Royal Danish Air Force SAAB J-35 Draken on static display.

Blackburn Buccaneer S2B

The hot summer of 1990 is now a distant memory, along with the sight and sound of probably the most underrated post-war jet aircraft to serve the RAF, never really being fully appreciated until the twilight of its service career.

Boeing KC-135R Stratotanker

Quite a common sight at Mildenhall show's but it was nice to see this KC-135R performing away from its more usual operating area.
