It is a shame that there will not be a (3rd QEC) Carrier alongside in Portsmouth for this occasion.

Be interesting to find out how many paint schemes some of these Hawks have had through their years of service in numerous roles.

I met the Arrows in my youth at Biggin Hill where they were based for the Queen's Silver Jubilee, where all their Gnats were lined up together with their Hercules Support Plane. The pilots in red and support crew in blue were chatting to service families the evening before the flypast. I loved the Gnats even though they scared the life out of one two year old Jim at RAF Cranwell when they came from behind the audience one display. It certainly was a very compact plane.

I also remember the Red Arrows Ice lollies we had that summer, where each came with a plastic Red Arrow launched via a rubber band and the Ice Lolly's stick. :D

Can't keep up with these Jubilees... so which year would that have been? Think I saw Red Arrows in their Gnats in 1968, so a good 10yrs before the switch to Hawks

Soon after the Silver Jubilee the Arrows took almost a year off to transfer and train up on the Hawk.
