Lovely stuff Paddy :clap:

Coltishall was an awesome base and I lived 5 miles from the 04 threshold for 18 years and have great memories from here.

Great set of pictures Patrick, I never tire of Jags, especially the old camo jobs at Colt (sadly missed). Funny enough I was looking at the place on google maps the other day, didn't realise it had become a solar farm :( :(

Stunning photos! What a place that was, I used to love going to Colt during our family holidays to Norfolk. Sadly missed.

It's really depressing how our hobby has shrunk to almost nothing in the last 30 years.

Similar to my other hobby, natural history, but at least with wildlife it can make a recovery with correct habitat management and reducing pollution, etc. It's sad to think there's no way we'll ever see jets in East Anglian skies like we used to. Need a new hobby!
