Great shots as usual Sven, really useful for the Airfix kit when it emerges, that red railed 56 Sqn one really floats my boat. :)

Lovely pics! Now that was a real fighter. 

 

I'm suddenly flashing back:

And beautifully enacted by Peter Jones as the Book (with Terry Riley's 'A Rainbow in Curved Air' playing in the background) Fabulous photos from a lost time when I still had more enthusiasm for the real thing.

Yes, yes, oh my, yes! Love the Herks as much as the FGR2's! Thank you so much, Keith!

Agreed on both counts, the USAF did not like fuel spills.  Superb Phantom pics... takes me back, I'm just glad I don't have to cross "the pond" in a Herc again. (who am I kidding)
