Binbrook exercise April 87

Post by phantommadman » Sun Mar 04, 2018 8:45 pm

I was wondering if anyone could help me with a few details about an exercise/squadron exchange that happened at RAF Binbrook in April '87.
I was attending an ATC camp at this time,and I managed to take some very dodgy disc camera photos of F16s,but the photos were so bad,I can't even tell you which country they were from :Oops:

Any details of planes and serials etc would be greatly appreciated :)

Many thanks in advance.

Evening Des, can't help from personal logs as didn't go in April. Having searched the forum I found this post which may be of use if you were there on 14th.

There has often been mention on here about the wish for a time machine to go back! Add modern technology to the "survival kit" and we'd see some great images from the past. Mind you it would need to be a big one to take us all :lol:
