    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 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.

    Yes, a good link which I have previously explored; a nice series of pictures from those days.

    On the civil ramp 1979. The Queen was carrying out a Middle East tour and had just arrived from Riyadh, hence the red carpet. The chap in the beige suit walking to the aircraft is one of her bodyguards. A special mod was the royal standard, which was flown out of the captain's side window when the Queen was on board and Concorde was taxying slowly.

    A beautiful aircraft what a shame it no longer flies.

    Queens Concorde arrival with Royal Standard flying from the captain's side window. Wonder what happened to the flag when Concorde was grounded, in someones private collection?
