Brilliant, I always love some Aggressor schemes.

 

Is that a little heart shape in the camo on '43'. HaHa.... very cute :wub:

Superb shots Keith.

 

I am interested in 159881/543 as a modelling subject, using the Furball decal sheet. Furball have 159881 in 1982 with the "old style" nose cone and original, non extended LE extension so I assume that in 1981 this would be the same. I find it very difficult to determine the nosecone shape from side on pictures - can you tell? Any help would be appreciated. Looks a little like the "shark nose" radome in this picture to me?

 

Cheers

What's happening above the nose of #50?

What did you notice?

Looks like someones trying to enter the cockpit of an aircraft (two tone grey with '53' in white) in the background.

Can't quite make out what it is but it looks to have very long landing gear (a Skyhawk would be my guess)

That's an A-4E and he's doing something very stupid trying to move from the wing to the cockpit area without a ladder.The Skyhawk at that point is very high. One recklessness and he could had ended up in a hospital (the least!).
