Guide to EGNO.. BAD 1 BAD 2.C130 Loop. Aircrew tales

Post by johnhowe » Sat Feb 06, 2010 9:38 pm

I thought we might start at the beginning when Warton was known as B.A.D. 2 this thread gives the history of Warton from the late 1930s B.A.D. 2 Stands for Base Air Depot 2. B.A.D.1. was Burtonwood.
Edit 25.2.2018 There are over 90 individual youtube videos all Jets/info all downloaded in feb 2010
all have been checked by me on 24/25/feb 2018.http://www.fightercontrol.co.uk/forum/v ... 21&t=44923
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TSkD_zqhhao This is Warton old video.



https://www.gov.uk/government/publicati ... l-archives
It also relates to The Freckleton Air Disaster. Over time I will be removing all items that dont relate to aircraft that have either been manufactured or visited Warton.

Just to give a taste of how many aircraft were processed through Warton 711 Douglas A26 Invaders, 360 B17 Fortresses, 2,894 B24
Liberators. 4,372 North American P51 Mustangs and with other types the number was over 10,000.

Thanks again Graham. In this video clip you have 693 with and without over wing tanks. At the
beginning of the video are two well known Warton favourites, one is the Buccaneer and other is
the late lamented Baz Livesey doyen of Wartons Ground crews, Baz is the one with the mop of
blond hair standing next to the houchin starter.

The last minute of the Lightning was very nostalgic because Keith Hartley was flying 693 I
remember him flying down 26 from east to west and banking over the 22 Saudi Lightnings.

At the end of video are thumnails to other lightning videos enjoy.

some more of Warton's finest which I've not seen before. good archival stuff of the ex-Saudi aircraft in various stages of decay, from shiny alloy to barely scrap. some good on-airfield shots of EGNO.
apologies for the big link.
