Awesome pictures Dave - thanks for sharing.Seeing them makes me wish I had gone - it sucks being poor!! Looks like the Capies go for quality above quantity - some fine craftmanship evident amongst the assembled fleet.Well done chaps.BTW - Lionels plane is a Tucano, a Brazilian design and one of my all time favourites.
The Short Tucano T1 is based on the Brazilian Embraer EMB-314 and is modified for the RAF under license by the British Short Brothers company as a trainer replacement for their Jet Provost. This specific model is based on ZF 319, from No. 72 squadron (reserve), No. 1 Flying Training School at RAF Linton-on-Ouse from around mid to late 1990's & is one of 130 T1's in use in the UK at that time.Lionel
