Hi all, Just read a small article in the local paper regarding planning permission for an aircraft maintenance hangar at Enstone capable of housing large WW2 Twin engined aircraft like the DC-3 & Catalina.

Re: 1/32 F-4C DECALS

I managed to track down some Cutting Edge decals for my 1/48th U-2 off Ebay. Like everything else Cutting Edge they weren't cheep as they are hard to come by (for a complete set) but I did eventually find a seller in Vegas.

Good luck with your search :thumb:

Re: Upper Heyford EF-111 parking area?

Ahh, O.k.

Looking at this photo an EF-111 is being towed in to the fenced off area of HAS shelters marked on the other drawing as 1 - 9 ? : http://www.raf-upper-heyford.org/Aerial ... 1989_1.jpg

Probably not much help but thought it might have some use?

Re: Upper Heyford EF-111 parking area?

I assume you have visited http://www.raf-upper-heyford.org?

There is an image here with the caption:
"A map of the UH flightline we had up in our shop before we renovated it in 1986". Submitted by Art Sevigny, SSgt, 77TFS, 1980 - 1987.
Is this the kind of thing you are after?

Re: RAF West Malling - maps & pics wanted

Does Google Earth still have the feature to view maps from the past? I've used it before when going to look at old airfields and it has proved quite useful.
