It's a shame about the former Strathallan collection one (crushed in a fatal hangar collapse and then sold in bits to the States) and the one rusting away in a field in Canada though.
PS: It's a bit more complicated than that re the ex Strathallan one. http://www.timefades..._976_intro.html

They are only doing this till the delivery of the F35 or the Leafs win the cup which ever comes first.

What is amazing about that photo is someone could very realistically have flown both the oldest (hurricane) and the newest (lightning) in their career.
A bit different today where aircraft are often older than their pilots, in some cases their pilot's grandparents!

I didnt not notice it until Milo mentioned it, but I believe he is talking about the silhouette. The split between the two right engine pods is clearly defined, while the left two look like a whole body section.
