Re: Which is better?

Used to have a 350 but sold it and now use my wife's 400. If you can afford/justify the extra cost then I would recommend the 400 - personal choice of course but those "little" extras make it that much better.

Re: Gate guards

The frames quoted for Lakenheath are actually further inside the base. The gate guard is an F-100.

Re: It's nearly the end of May, time for a Milly Air Fete thread

THe atmosphere always seemed the same - "something special". What that is I cannot put a finger on but Lakenheath, Al...

Re: New to FC or not so new? Introduce yourself here.

I thought it was about time I did the "formal" intro so apologies for the delay. I'm another Ian living close to Lakenheath & Mildenhall. Just don't get the chance to visit as much as I'd like. However I am keen to help with questions and take part where possible. Currently scanning some of my slide...

Re: F-14 Tomcats, a selection plus let's see yours

Re: Waterbeach Burma Star Day 1976

Les - just to answer you first - no problem regardless and thanks for looking.

Graham - you are a star - many, many thanks for that. I never subscribed to WLAG - maybe I should have done :whistle:

That is one big gap filled in my outstandings :thumbs: :thumbs: :thumbs:
Thanks again

Re: scanning some of Dads photos

If you saw it at RIAT91 then there was also a single seater on static as well 7037/9-037. If it helps it was next to the tiger-striped CF-18 188769.
