U S air show Camera restrictions 2018

Just posting to advise that I attended the MCAS Miramar air show last weekend and went equipped with a clear zippable plastic bag for my camera (via Amazon), 100-400mm and wide angle lenses.

Derlict C-46 at Riverside, CA

Hi,
By any chance has anyone an ID on the wfu C-46, used as a dwelling, at 5178 Rubidoux Avenue, Riverside, CA?
Visible on Google Earth but no serial seems to be quoted anywhere.
Long shot I know!
Thanks & regards,

Re: Greenham Common 1971

Thanks everyone, starting to look like it was the MC-130 that arrived and not a C-97!
Appreciate all the input.

Re: RAF Valley 1968

Just noted that 5-118 was in Lyneham on 18/12/68 and 5-108 (not 5-109) was there on 26/12, so it seems possible the Iranians did visit Valley.
Thanks again,

Re: RAF Valley 1968

Thanks Bob,
Sounds reasonable, although I was not aware they visited Valley - a sad miss if they did! Yes, the c/n's for both are 4148 (5-109) and 4295 (5-118).
Much obliged,

RAF Valley 1968

I have just discovered an old teletype 'Arrival' message for two flights "Iranian 5118 and 5109" for their arrival into Valley at 13:03z and 1313z respectively, on 31/12/1968
Can anyone enlighten me as to types/serial or any other information on these two items?
Thanks,
Colin

REQ: Peruvian Air Force

Hi,
Can anyone confirm the date of delivery from Warton for the Peruvian AF Canberra B(1)56, serial 242 (ex. WH880) during 1969. I know it was on the 8th of the month but was it May or June 1969?
Many thanks,
Colin
