The USN WV-2/EC-121 alone makes you wanna cry when compared with today’s offerings.

I remember a EC-121 on the 23 bomber loop one air day but I don't see it on this video. Must be another year.

My mistake it was actually 1966 and can be seen in the 66/69 video by the same person on YouTube.

How pathetic is that fence round the 05 undershoot though.

The Mirage on coming down the taxi way to 05 is a highlight for me. One of my favourite spots to photograph aircraft in the world !! And to think all the aircraft types years gone that have come down it I missed. :(

Great to see this film ! People who take the time and effort to digitise film and slide are worth there wight in gold !

The Mirage is an Etendard IVM, but yes, I know what you mean about that taxiway. Seen some interesting aircraft there in years gone by!
