The RIAT organisers always appear keen to adopt themes, no matter how tenuous, so I am sure would welcome the suggestion.</p> <p>A collection of aircraft types, fronted perhaps by a Percival Prentice and a Eurofighter under the banner "Fifty Years of British Military Aircraft Procurement - A Celebration". Airworthy Prentices still exist, as do Eurofighters, but presumably as a real Eurofighter could not be spared from its now nearly decade-long development flying, we would have to make do with the much-travelled display mock-up. The fact that it was a plastic replica would, however, add an extra poignancy.</p> <p>Criteria for inclusion in the line-up would be wide, but must at least take into account ineffectiveness, unsuitability, the size of the eventual cost overrun and the gap between the originally intended and actualhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Celebrate-the-best-of-British-155352/
