High Speed TSR2 Flight to Akrotiri

The FGUK pilots whose TSR2s made it to Cyprus

StuartC led a flight of latest-version TSR2-GR3s, one of FGUK's fantasy operational aircraft projects. Featuring all new liveries from the studio of thebroons and needing a firm hand on the stick, the flight took just under two and a half hours to reach Athens.

This is a news story. How does it look?

There should be some Red Arrows here. At the moment, there isn't, and I'm not sure why. I'm going to look into it anyway.
