Re: Voyagers

CASA 016 was active from Getafe yesterday with a UK mil hex of 43C6F7. Presumably this is ZZ334 which was last seen as hex 343447 so perhaps this may be delivered soon?

What a fantastic shot - notice how "undeveloped" the airfield is, with very few lights, buildings and other structures.

Re: RAE Bedford request

I remember XH132 leaving Bedford for St Mawgan ( for fire training?) in mid to late 1986, in the "raspberry ripple" scheme. Any one know why it was later repainted grey?
