Nice article from Flight on the delivery of the 60th Thor to the RAF in March 1960, from the Douglas plant at Santa Monica direct to North Luffenham:

I particularly like the shot of the missile being towed by a David Brown VIG/Taskmaster tug. :)

All the best,

In one pic it is shown at N.Luff with an american tractor unit towing the artic trailer. This appears in the Pathe film; The Truck carries a reg plate borrowed from a DP 1 fire tender ?
