Specially for RIAT full colour 312 sqn markings were applied, but the 313 sqn groundcrew at Fairford applied their own stickers [joke]. When the jet came back at Volkel AB the 313 stickers were removed right away.

This is the famous demo a/c in the RNLAF. The first one with a really special colour sceme. When he retired the demo stuff it came back to 312. Shortly after I took it over it was painted back to the grey colour sceme.
