LOL! DOH! Olde age does not come by itself and I'm talking about 1975, there were 2 squadrons of Navy F4s at Lossie. I think they were actually Ark Royals aircraft but age and drink have taken their toll....
Ah, the term smokeless is, erm..., applied loosely. Less smoke rather than smoke less would be more accurate.

You're right about the Mig29. Theres no doubt as to where they are !
