Norwegian Vampires in RAF markings
« on: January 29, 2018, 05:21:11 PM »
The Vampire pair are getting a re-paint for 2018 in historical RAF Colors. One of them has a good NI connection with the markings of 72 Squadron being painted on the jet for this year. .

VZ305 will be in 72 Squadron markings.



And WZ447 will be in  Squadron markings.

Oh very nice.

I guess because 4 and 72 are the oldest currently-established squadrons which operated Vampires?

It would be great to have them over here at Newcastle or Portrush given the 72 Squadron connection.
