92 Sqn history

Other interest during March 1972 included a visit by Norman Barker to the Tactical Fighter Meet at Soesterberg, hosted by the Americans. Norman flew XN788 to the USAF base on March 17th, returning to Gutersloh on the following day - but not before carrying out a very unofficial flypast, as he now explains:
"There was a guest night in the evening at which C-in-C RAFG was the guest speaker. We had expressly been briefed that on no account were we to do beat-ups when we left the following morning because of the closeness of Queen Juliana's residence, etc etc. After many beers, the Dutch representative at the meet asked me to accompany him to Northern Holland, where a pilot from his Squadron was getting married. We then convinced the German representative that he should join us. The Belgian was not interested. On the following morning, we got airborne, left the vicinity of Soesterberg and joined up on 333.3. The Dutchman led, and the German and I joined in close formation. I was in echelon port. We then flew to the church, where I could see the congregation outside, and we did several passes. The Dutchman thanked us and I returned to Gutersloh. It seemed a good idea at the time and I never heard any more about it."
