of Steve Mills, Kemble's Chief Fire Officer, who was killed in an
accident earlier in the year
Two Dutch aircraft attended - Hawker Hunter F6A N-294....
.... and two seat Hawker Hunter T8C N-321
The Vulcan team emphasized its effect on crowd attendance
but even its presence could not persuade large crowds out in
Saturday's cold, wet and windy weather
The big noise on Sunday was provided by two Tornado GR4's

six ex RAF Dominies....
