Some years ago when I lived in UK near Portsmouth naval area ... there was the annual Airshow at Lee on Solent ...
The USAF had 2 F15's come over specially modified to carry on one of the big US Aircraft. She was too big for enter to harbour and sat of in the Solent at anchor. The F15's took of and did display over the airbase ... passing right over low my apartment ... that was spectacular ... but the real show-stopper was when the RAF Tornado came in low ... under the F15, pulled up and looped round her ... I'd never seen that before and never seen again !

But the show had two displays that always make any Brit proud ... the Battle of Britain Flight (Lancaster + Spitfire and Hurricane escorts) ... seeing and hearing that Lancaster throttling to pull round ...

Then finale of course is the Red Arrows ..........


As to colour for the F15 model .... I need something visible, colourful but simple ... and I'd like to stay reasonably within actual schemes ...
