No shield there... :lol: it has an empty back seat (such a shame... volunteers enough!) and the danger triangle and the markings on the intake of XX285 are visible through the bent canopy... :wink:

And indeed, a top day it was. Maybe not quantity-wise, but most certainly quality-wise, because of the pilots providing exactly the kind of action we all hoped for. For example:

As stated in the other topic, the F-84F behind FR-29 (and barely visible in your pic) is FU-108.
