C130 lands at disused RAF Burn airfield.

Post by 1979bree » Tue Sep 15, 2015 9:17 pm

Last four engine jobbie to operate into or out of here was a Halifax in 1945... residents may be reporting a ghost bomber!
Also flew in at 21,00 in total darkness but unfortunately thats not good for cameras......
