Remark Photographer
XJ521 / R-243 (cn 10030) I seem to remember that this event was a rehearsal (to which Joe Public were admitted) for some sort of Royal review. It was a long journey by rail and hitchhiking from London for me!

Great shot, which gives a good overview of an era. I envy the aircraft diversity they had in those days, which makes ours seem boring by comparison.

A fantastic collection of aircraft in liveries that nowadays would be considered strange. Those outgoing AEW Gannets in the back are a rare sight! Thanks for sharing!

Wow, fantastic photograph! Just look at the "Bucc"s and the Vixen is a beaut too!

On some rare ocassion, i vote a 5 star. This is that moment. Very beautiful picture, reminds me of my days making scale models. Great looking plane and background here.

Evocative and fascinating.
A pretty broad representation of the FAA in 1964, I like the Gannets in the air too.

Anti-flash white! 'nuff said I think. The helicopters look rather old and tired, but the Sea Vixen looks spot on.

Fantastic shot!
Sea Vixens, Buccaneers and the flying aircraft seem to be Fairey Gannets.
Plus the helicopters.
