Re: No.1 Squadron Through The Ages 1939-1969

Robert,

You should be able to find the 1sqdn GR9 Harrier disbandment scheme still available.

#2 - middle bus = 320, big fins = sharklets. Therefore #2 is BA A320 with Sharklets.

#3 - possibly an Iberia A340 in the old colours - ole skins

#6 - the Qantas 737-800 Mendoowoorrji scheme
