Our great friends at the Waddington International Airshow offered us the very emotional occasion of performing our first flying display in the UK since the unfortunate events of less than two years ago.

After arrival on Thursday an evaluation rehearsal display was flown in the afternoon to the satisfaction of the show's Flying Control Committee: Bronco Demo Team is good to display again!

Friday was leisurely spent by the team in the nearby town of Lincoln, climbing Steep Hill street all the way to the top for a visit of the magnificent Lincoln Cathedral and Castle.
Crowds flocked to RAF Waddington in great numbers on both days for a most varied and interesting show including many rare cold war types such as the SAAB Draken and Viggen, the mighty Vulcan, the Canberra, several Hawker Hunters, the Gnat display team, etc… all making the Bronco feeling readily at home!
Show themes this year were 50 years Red Arrows, 60 years NATO and ISTAR14, all suitably illustrated in the flying display and with a very good static line up to include amongst many other highlights an Italian Air Force B767, the Oil Spill Response B727 - flown in by fellow BDT pilot Dan Griffith - and a humble company Shorts SC7 Skyvan showing of it's new livery!

With special thanks to Paul Sall, Charles Skiera and Roger Steele.
