A minimum of 15 Pound Sterling had to be paid in advance and all was donated to charity. Enthusiasts who wanted to visit this event, had to print out a special application form and this had to be sent off with a cheque to the RAF. Entry was possible between noon and 16.00 hours on a prebooked time spot. Parking on the base it self was available and two old British Transport buses were ferrying up and down to the line-up. In total, twelve foreign visitors were on the tarmac from six different countries. The RAF showed off their jets in special colour schemes and four aircraft were adopting these unusual colours. Apart from the static photo shoot, enthusiasts who were lucky to get an entry slot before 12.30, were treated with a little operational show. Tornado ZE735 was ordered to come home and took off just before 12.30. Soon after, Belgian Seaking RS05 started up its engines and after a spectacular take-off it kept on circling above the airfield for clearance to leave the airspace. Overall, the RAF at Northolt did a fantastic job again. The contribution towards charity has been a great success and was much appreciated by all enthusiasts visiting that day. The RAF Northolt even provided parking space, bus services and steps to take those beautiful shots from a different angle. Hereby I would like to thank all of the people who were involving organizing and making this event very successful.
