'Ding Dong' It's true the Rafale is a fine looking Jet!!

First of a series of pics from Biggin Hill Air Show this year I shall be posting over the next few weeks. This was the only airshow I managed to get to this year. The Rafale caught my eye.....& with all the photo's taken and published on the web I went for a more unique & attractive photo!!

The Rafale is a great looking jet in its own right with similar characteristice to the Saab Grippen (my favourite of the modern jets)

The Dassault Rafale - is a French twin-engined delta-wing agile multi-role jet aircraft designed and built by Dassault Aviation. Introduced in 2000, the Rafale is being produced both for land-based use with the French Air Force and for carrier-based operations with the french Navy.

Blackburn Rippon II Fleet Air Arm Torpedo Plane

Picked this old Flight Photo up in Manston History Museum. What a slab of a plane the Blackburn Rippon was!!, just imagine flying above the wave tops, with a battleship filling the view between the cabane strutts while you try and launch a 'tin fish'!!!
