    1968 - This one shows the (then) new 'Overseas Hangar' built for the great white elephant the Belfast aircraft which went on to have a fairly successful career in civil hands.

    I always thought the Belfast has a "Russian" look to it.

    The links seem to have broken to my images; having problems today; serves me right for sorting them in Photobucket yesterday.

    Tes, the Belfast does have an Antonov look about it.

    I think they copied the design for the AN12.

    I have just been sort of writing about my life including my time in the RAF.

    I am now up to my first tour overseas in RAF Bahrain and I came across this very useful thread which covers a lot of my time there but it is mostly about Hunters in 1963/64 although the Beverley's do get a mention.

    I would like to get in touch with the author to thank him for the memory jogging.
