On 12th May 2012 during the Families Day which formed part of the 100th anniversary celebrations 2 Typhoons fron No. 3 (F) Squadron took off from RAF Coningsby on a training sortie over the North Sea.
During the take off run I took a series of photographs, one of which stood out from the rest and it was decided to have it enlarged and framed and presented to the squadron.
On 30 July the picture was presented to Wg Cdr Dickie Patounas (OC 3(F))and Sqn Ldr Geoff Hall (OC MSF) it bears a brass plaque with the following inscription.
Presented to 3(F) Squadron by David Holmes on behalf of 3(F) Sqn Association to mark the occasion of the 100th anniversary”
