    A huge thank you to everyone who turned out to the Cosford Airshow on Sunday and a special thank you to all those made time to visit XV490 or Black Mike, chat to our team or stop by the BPAG merchandise stall. The group would not be able to carry out its aims if it wasn't for your support and every penny made yesterday will go toward helping the BPAG in its activities in the future. The group is made up entirely of volunteers so your contribution, however small, really does make a difference. Our next event is the Lincolnshire Show on 20/21 June, when XV490 will again be in attendance, hopefully we will see some of you there. Once more, many many thanks to you all.

      One final shot from Cosford, and its a beauty. Thanks to Damien Burke for sharing it with us.

        Its a busy week for XV490. Tomorrow and Thursday, it will be on display at the Lincolnshire Show at the Lincolnshire Showgrounds. Then, this weekend sees the annual Cockpit Fest at Newark Air Museum. Cockpit visits will be available at both events and BPAG team members will be on hand to chat and answer your questions. Hope to see you there!

          An unusual sight on the streets of Cleethorpes. XV490 rolls into town for this weekend's Armed Forces Day.

                  XV582 emerging from Hangar 4 at RAF Cosford for a photoshoot last Sunday. Special guest of honour Michael Pugh-Davis checking out the front seat for a change.

                    Not only is 2018 the centenary of the RAF but it is also the 30th anniversary of one of its record setting achievements. On 24/02/1988 XV582 (in its pre-Black Mike guise with 43 Squadron) set a world record for the fastest time between John O'Groats and Land's End of 46 minutes and 44 seconds. On 12/08/2018 the British Phantom Aviation Group were proud to reunite the aircrew from that day- pilot W/Cdr John Brady and navigator Flt Lt Michael Pugh- with the aircraft for the first time since that day in 1988.

                        The British Phantom Aviation Group are pleased to announce the next event in our F-4 60th Anniversary celebrations. We will be taking Mike Davey's XV490 cockpit section to this year's North Lincolnshire Aviation Festival. Following the success of the first ever North Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Festival in 2017, Skydive Hibaldstow and the Northern Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Forum (in conjunction with North Lincs Council) are again hosting this event which takes place at Hibaldstow Airfield on Sunday 30th September. The event will celebrate and focus on the aviation history of the area, telling the story of Northern Lincolnshires heritage from World War One to the present day. Admission to the event is free. XV490 will be onsite and will be open for cockpit visits and BPAG members will be in attendance to chat and answer your questions. Exclusive Phantom merchandise will also be available. Hope to see you there!
