Rhino Hunt 99.

As the years pass the mighty Rhino becomes harder to see. The place to see active Rhinos this year was RIAT Fairford held on the weekend of 24th & 25th July. Six of these mighty beasts were present. Four German Luftwaffe examples and two Turkish Air Force. Although none of the Rhino's flew, seeing  two of them taxi at the finale of the show was still a great treat for Phantoms Phans everywhere. Long Live The Rhino ~ Phantoms Phorever !

The Fairford Rhinos were as follows -
