Re: Facilities at Coningsby

You'd be best going to the WAVE (the viewing enclosure opposite the Vulcan at RAF Waddington on the A15) where there is a clean toilet and some rather good food. The base isn't as busy as Coningsby but the enclosure would be safer for kids and is well away from the road. I hope that helps. :) Seems...

Recommendations buying lens

Hi

Where's the best place to buy lenses, I was looking on Amazon but after a little digging I see there's are sent from Roma

Anywhere in the UK that sell new canon lenses
ie: 100-400mm mk2

Cheers

Re: Ex Cobra Warrior parking restrictions

i think when the base sees how many people turn up for this, they will have to organise something akin to the Park and View for arrivals/departures if they hold another excercise at Waddo Why and who pays for such a facility? The RAF has a job to do, and its not supplying a facility that gets used ...

Re: Ex Cobra Warrior parking restrictions

The wave was stood up by John and when the lack of visiting aircraft and exercises stopped at waddo, I can imagine that hitting him and the team pretty hard. They didn't have to continue, but they did. most of you pay £1 pp at Johns field, mildenhall and don't say a thing. I'd be happy to pay a fiv...
