REQ Help with Mildenhall Air Fete dates for slides Please

Post by PaulN » Mon Jun 22, 2020 2:27 pm

Hi All

HELP

Have been scanning my slides and have a lot of Mildenhall Air Fete slides I am having trouble with due to my VERY poor book keeping :blush: I wonder if anyone can help with the years some of these were taken please , some may not be Mildenhall but were in a box marked as such :huh: :huh:

https://pbase.com/edit_gallery/usnavypatchman/milhelp

Much appreciate any help anyone can give :clap:

Thank you very much

Paul :thumb:

Hello mate

Blimey - thought there maybe a couple to look at

A good starting point would be here - scroll down to the Mildenhall shows and check the shows

https://www.scramble.nl/showreports/united-kingdom

I will look at some a bit later but KC-10 ‘Spirit of Kitty Hawk’ is 1991 - have it up on the screen now

Cheers

Darren

Yes I have been through the Scramble lists have them all printed out in fact , but a lot of things dont tie up they have ZR RF-4Cs as ARs, several of the B-52s cant find at all ..getting square eyes maybe , been doing it for the past month

Thanks for the info on the KC-10 :thumb:

Cheers

No problem; the email was redundant when I realized that you are deleting slides as and when the subjects' years are identified - makes sense, but by then I'd already sent the email! No need for a full list now, but at least the batch of years
I've sent should take care of the majority that were outstanding as of last night.

Cheers,
M
