An afternoon at DSEME Lyneham

Postby grahamdevizes » Wed Sep 27, 2017 7:15 pm

Myself and several other fellow enthusiasts had a guided tour of the site at Lyneham this afternoon. Everything on the current "Demobbed" list was seen and photography was positively encouraged. I will post photos and a full log tomorrow but in the mean time, can anyone shed any light upon what appeared to be a couple of Lynxes, one side on, the other face on that were just about seen with binoculars or telephoto lenses at the very far end of the field? Our REME guide, Sgt Sean Ireland didn't realise they were there so was unable to offer any clues as to their reggies. Thanks in advance

At the Bradenstoke village end of the main runway, there were two helis that were impossible to ID, I can't even say what they were, I only had an 18-135mm lens with me.

Huge thanks to our guide Sean Ireland for whom nothing was too much trouble
