GIN - RAF Church Fenton
29 May 1967
S.S.A.F.A. International Air Pageant
The excellent RAF Church Fenton website shows that Jet Provosts from 1FTS ( Linton-on-Ouse) flew an Aerobatic Formation display at their show on 29 May 1967.
No team name is mentioned, just that the aircraft were from 1FTS.
This Link will show the exact webpage :-), but without the RAF Church Fenton navigation buttons :-(
Alternatively vist the website, then hit the "Air Displays" button on the left, then 1967 & Voila !

I saw this British Rail flyer advertising the show on eBay.
Here's the cover for the 1967 show programme.
The only mention of the team inside the programme is as shown here ( Many thanks to Dave Stevens for the scan )
Originally, I was sent a partial scan of the following newspaper article below by David Watkins. - MANY THANKS !.
The quality isn't brilliant, but I've cleaned it up as much as I can ( or dare ).
The article is from the Yorkshire Evening Post dated 29 May 1967, the date of the show at Church Fenton.
The YEP archives couldn't find this exact page ( they probably archived a version from a different region ).
But they did send me this ... :-)
