I REALLY hope so. John Sessions said he wanted one too (in joking around with him he also says he wants an F-14 XD). but then again, theres going to be two more Mig-29UBs imported and sold along with this one. hopefully one of em stays here ^^

yeah but doesnt sound like it'll be there permanently though...
it could go anywhere (seeing as he has stuff in colorado, arizona (where the 190 currently is), or somewhere in eastern washington). but I hope it stays here!

I live very close (around 10 miles) away from Radlett where the Hampden was built and made it's first flight. They built the Halifax there too. I've only ever seen wrecks of Hampdens though so I look forward to the photographs.

There's a member at Airshow Buzz that's been taking picture's of this bird. How many people were at the airfield?

I love this bird. Great shot too.

hum, wonder if it was Liz..

but there were about 30-40 people there Tuseday, and 20-30 there Wednesday. I only made it to the 2PM flights (as during the 10AM flights, I was in school). it was an awsome plane to see fly. nice a loud. made quite an impressive takeoff yesterday too

oh that one was taken when it left Arlington in Janurary. Unfortunately I wasnt there when it left from there to Paine Field, but I think I know who took that

Oh ok. I am not familiar with the photography company or whatever they are who took those shots. I would also like to see a Flanker west side as well. They're unfortunately in the East right now.
