2006 was a good year for the big July shows. The Russians returned with the incredible MiG-209OVT displaying at RIAT and Farnborough with it’s thrust-vectoring antics. The Canberra PR9 also took it’s final bow in 2006 with memorable displays at Waddington and RIAT and a number of shows celebrated the 70th Anniversary of the Spitfire. It was also the final year of the Utterly Butterly Barnstormers who were rebranded Team Guinot at the end of the year.
