Re: Inquiry re - date of last RAF Biggin Hill BoB At Home

Well I have a log of what I believed was a Battle of Britain show at Biggin Hill on 14 Sep 74. Some photos below.

Re: Upper Heyford Airshows

I always loved the Upper Heyford airshows. Never as big as Mldenhall but with a great atmosphere and the occasional gem in the static display. My first Heyford Open Day was in 1969 when the 66th TRW were based there with RF-101 Voodoos and RF-4C Phantoms. Here are some photos from the day: 56-0058 R...

Thanks very much to Graham Luxton and Dan Beeden. You have solved a 49-year old riddle and made an old man very happy! As a bonus prize here's the other photo of 61-0317 I took on that day. What a base Heyford was back in the day! https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50237963262_f327234841_b.jpg 71C0...

Bear with me as this is the first time I've tried posting photos on here from Flickr!

Re: Farnborough 16/12/04 - Two Tornadoes

A fellow Farnborough spotter has come up with the answer below: ZE942/XE F3 from AWC landed at 10.10 "Tonic72" departed 14.00. ZA556/AJ-C 617 Sq landed about 0900 "Tonic 73". Also later that day about 12.00 a flyby at Guildford reported as ZG711 of 2Sq flying with 617 Sq "Lossie41"Dont think this wa...

Re: Farnborough 16/12/04 - Two Tornadoes

I've checked as I live in Farnborough but I was on holiday in Spain on that date.

I've asked the question on the FAB Group board.

Re: Stead Field October 1994

I visited Reno-Stead in Oct 92.

'17' was Mig-15UTI N17KM

In 92 there were two silver IL-14s on the field. VEB-14P N163RR and IL-14P N606RR. N606RR carried no external marks or reg.

I later saw N606RR at Sonoma County Airport, CA in Oct 94 so your IL-14 was presumably N163RR.

Re: Abbotsford BC Airshow August 2018

I've been to the Abbotsford show a few times. It's very popular, many people attend from the US as the airfield is only just north of the border. So I'd try to get in as early as possible - I think the gates normally open at 9am. There will be a queue waiting for the gates to open. Plenty of food an...
