Looks like you got great weather for your visit, not something that can always be said for Valley.

The Hawk T2 looks like a much more purposeful aircraft than the T1 (although the T1 was prettier for sure).

We did Dunc(also got a half decent tan too). I rather like the T2, looks rather sporty in the all black scheme and certainly has more power than a T1/1a.

T2 is significantly heavier than T1 / T1A even though it has more thrust.

It accelerates worse and has nothing like the roll  rate of the T1 / T1A.

It's a good 25 - 35 Kts slower max low level (more when it has the belly tank fitted).

Sustained turn performance is better though on account  of the bigger wing.

So that pretty well accounts for why the Reds haven't swapped their ancient T.1a's for swanky new T.2's then. More poke but less "go", sounds rather familiar does that(think Spey Phantom)...

Share the love with your mates I say.^_^
