I find this photograph (and especially the date associated with it) fascinating as not four years later, the Royal Navy would be destroying (and occasionally capturing) these aircraft in the Falklands.

The color scheme was aplied only for the airshow as well the registration number. In fact this aircraft was de A-519. (s/n 019).
Non standard equipment is the instaled Bendix RDR-160 Radar, needed for the ferry flight across the Atlantic.
Sadly it's crashed 01Jun1979.
In contrast of the canadian visitor. I found this picture fscinating as not four year later this type of aircraft surprised the pilots of the Royal Air Force, Royal Navy and Royal Army and the personel on ground.
