A great base sadly missed, spent so many happy times there and Coltishall is the reason I got into spotting, my father took me and my brother to the open days in late 60's and have been hooked ever since. That and living near to RAF Watton. Great pictures thanks for posting.

Working day shots - absolutely fantastic :clap: I think A&E in Norwich better prepare for Paddy once he sees these :'(
Brilliant memory of a brilliant place for viewing, one of my first ever trips down from Binbrook.
Thanks for posting :thumbs:

Fabulous! what a great deployment that was, and to a great base always worth a visit, no shortage of special paint jobs, great photo locations, those lovely Jags, then add in the SU-22s and camo AN-26s' in mainly decent weather, and my work sick record took a few hits! Great pics,got any more!

Reminds me of my ATC camp there in 1976, dare I say it got some photos somewhere, must dig them out sometime.
In this world there's two kinds of people, my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. You dig.

Wonderful airfield, don't ever remember it being anything other than busy on my occasional visits.

Love the first shot, looking towards the end of the runway area, from where many of these were taken.
