Salmesbury

Post by Apache123 » Thu Nov 12, 2020 6:07 pm

Hi all,

Drove past salmesbury today on preston new road and noticed an airframe under a tarpaulin on the airfield by the looks of it. Any ideas? Or do I need more sleep and specsavers 😴😂

** went for a closer look today and looks like 2 airframes one under a tarpaulin and a tornado fuselage.

the airframes are:

ZA328 - Tornado GR1
ZK533 - Hawk Mk.53

Both stored outside since at least September.

Preston new Road. Off m6 heading east. Head to Blackburn. Keeping right at the hotel. Follow road past an Indian restaurant and theres an industrial estate turning on the left. Go left and come into view on the left.

Regards
