They also have a Dornier DO228,but I`m not sure if they use it for actual displays.
The RAF Falcons have been very unlucky with displays in NI over the years due to weather,lack of aircraft etc.

Agreed,how about an invite to the Spanish Navy to send a couple of their AV-8B Harriers to display,before they retire them?
