Bristol Fighter
« on: October 04, 2020, 10:07:08 PM »
Ep1 of "Scotland from the Sky" broadcast on Sat 3rd Oct on BBC2 at 7pm features Bristol Fighter D8096, as featured on the cover of Deke's Iceberg, albeit with a different paint job. Still I guess it has earned a lick or two of paint since the 70s... Available on iPlayer for UK folks https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b09vk9qx/scotland-from-the-sky-series-1-episode-1.

I watched that episode pretty much by accident at the weekend (enjoyed it by the way) and was delighted to see the Bristol Fighter. "One of those is on the cover of Iceberg" I thought. Hadn't realised it was the same aircraft though.

Who'd a thunk it?

A great spot Mark.
Boldly going.......
