The EB-57s, were they Vermont ANG? at Woodbridge? in 1979?, if so we missed them by 2 weeks, totally gutted.
Cheers.
From memory they were from the 17th DSES based at Malmstrom AFB Montana

Yes I did. October and November 1971 they were turfing Canberras out of storage at a fair old rate and chopping them up for scrap. Including WN467 the prototype T.4.

I don't know who your mate Phil is/was but he sure did get around - a proper spotter.
If you come to the Northolt Night Photoshoot you will find out that I am still around! :D

The Meteor is an NF.11 not T.7. The French Test Centre had a small fleet of them for trials work purchased second hand from Britain
