The End Of The Dominie

Thu Jan 20, 2011 11:39 pm

The end of another era for the RAF with the Dominie being withdrawn from service and a few flybys today marked the occasion.

The RAF's ranks are getting small. Sad. I had no idea the Dominie was that old.

It is always sad to see an aircraft that has served so long and done so many things for the crews it trained make its final flight.

It seems the number of RAF A/C types are dropping like flies. Yet another retiree I am lucky to have seen before their quiet passing.

Won't be much left to see at Leuchars 2011, (if the base is even open then!)

Sad

Seeing the title of the post, I thought about the Dominie I saw, heard, smelled and touched in earlier years...
I know old Britain has longstanding traditions but didn't imagine they were still using those venerable machines
