Great set Keith :thumbs: I think we must have been stood 'shoulder to shoulder' at some points on the line.
It was a proper base with proper planes, but alas it didn't fit into the great scheme of things

Thanks for posting,

What a fabulous set of pictures and as others have remarked, the would seem the sun would shine at Binbrook on occasions! Oh for a time machine.

Nice to see Beaver XP811 featured too - sadly this aircraft crashed at Culdrose Air Day the following year whilst displaying in strong crosswinds - the pilot sadly losing his life.

Amazing photos! What a fantastic array of types.
Such a brilliant Air Force we had back then.

Depressing these days, I’ve not much of a hobby left at all.
