Apologies if someone has commented on this already, but I have spotted a mistake in the latest magazine! In the article profiling John Antony, there is a photograph of a Saab Viggen taking off with the caption that it is "One of the RAF's Battle of Britain Memorial Flights at Coningsby."
The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight only has Spitfire, Hurricane and Lancaster aircraft, all propellor driven, not jet and definitely not jet from another country. And being pedantic, that should read RAF Coningsby unless the airfield has been decommissioned.

I was the subject of the article and my reaction to the caption was the same as yours. The aircraft was a Mirage and was photographed at the Biggin Hill Air Fair. All of the shots that I submited for the article carried the correct captions. The error was created by the magazine editors. They do not send you a draft, so you can imagine my feelings when I received the magazine!

Regards,

John Anthony
