They’re here! These lovelies were ordered and received from Goulet last week, but I suppose I was just so thrilled I forgot to post them as promised. But here they are!
The new additions. (From left to right) A Lamy 2000 (EF), a TWSBI Diamond 580 (EF) and a Pilot Falcon (soft fine.) Additionally I decided to (finally) acquire a Midori passport TN. (And is that not the most beautiful color you’ve ever seen??)
I’ve been hardly able to do anything except hold them and play with them for days

Some more photos of RAF Typhoon FGR.4 ZK308 wearing Invasion Stripes and WW2 markings.
The aircraft is based at RAF Conningsby, which is not only the home of Air Combat 1 Group (No. 3, No. 11 and No. 29® Squadrons, all flying the Typhoon).

It also happens to be where the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight is based and indeed in the 4th shot (the landing one) you can see the BBMF’s Avro Lancaster, one of only two airworthy and flying Lancaster in the world.

For those that didn’t see the edit I made to the previous set (which is the majority of people liking and reblogging it), this scheme is to mark the 70th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings in Normandy, for which the invasion stripes were applied to aid in identifying Allied aircraft to reduce cases of friendly fire.
It was applied to all aircraft except heavy bombers, particularly the four engined variety, which were not prevalent in the Luftwaffe.

As a bonus, the final picture is the RAF’s 2014 Typhoon display aircraft which belongs to No. 29 (Reserve) Squadron, the RAF’s Operational Conversion Unit for pilots converting to the Typhoon.
It’s the first time the Typhoon display jet will feature a special livery for the airshow season.
