    Default Aircraft on Static Display at RAF Stations

    Here are 10 examples. Can anyone shed light on the question marks and/or add to the list?

    I was surprised I could find nothing at Cranwell...

    The Northernmost plane at Biggin Hill is not another spitfire. Wrong wing shape. I suggest it is most likely a Hurricane.

    And the aircraft pictured at Dunsfold, I think, is more likely to be a Harrier than a Hunter. Kinda grainy picture on that one though

    Honington? Maybe a Buccaneer.

    Coltishall? Not a Harrier but a Buccaneer as Coltishall is called 'The Home of the Buccaneer'.

    My mistake for Coltishall. I meant to say Jaguar and not Buccaneer

    Thanks for the corrections, and the new one. What about this pair, near High Wycombe? Hunter and Lightning??

    Yes. I'm happy to go along with that. Wonder what happened to that poor Lightening's wing

    Default Found another one

    Hardly a "Gate Guardian" but it goes on my list! What is it please??

    Poke around and you'll find two VC10s, one of which won't be on the next GE update(!), and, to the north of the good VC10, a red (burned?) something; Tornado?

    I decided it's a Buccaneer.
