RAF Halton open day 9-7-1977

Post by slogen51 » Fri Mar 05, 2021 4:33 pm

Bit of a long shot but in my log for Halton 9 July 1977

One of the hangars ( in my log it just says white hangar near hangar 3!) There were 3 sea vixens :-

8143M XN691/36
8139M XJ582/02
??????? ?????? ??

The above hangar had 8 JP in it which I have logged and I can't remember why a sea vixen wasn't read off unless it was in a separate section?


8140M XJ571/33 was outside in static

Any help with the missing vixen in the hangar would be great.

Thanks

BARG has the third as XJ526/8145M (no code quoted). All were in Hangar 4.

Thanks very much

( Just had an email to say my BARG DVDs have been dispatched although I didn't get the one covering 1977!)

Hi Slogen

I went the following year - on 1.7.78 Sea Vixen XJ526 had 1 SOTT code "38" - HTH
Listening with a Bearcat BCT 15X close to Hammerland

In 1975 XN691 was coded '36' (which is the same as slogen's sighting in 1977), XJ526 was coded '38', but XJ582 was coded '32' according to :- https://www.scramble.nl/database/show-r ... alton-1975

Does BARG have a code for XJ582?

Thanks for the help

Looking at Sea vixen codes, my log say XJ582/02 but it probably was 32 judging my the other codes?
