These photos are courtesy of Charles Waitkus of West Virginia. He was stationed at RAF Burtonwood and moved to RAF Bovingdon. He worked on the two AACS Flight Check aircraft assigned to him. The C-47 Gooneybird (Dakota) call sign '9250' was one of two used to verify the accuracy of USAF Navigational Aids in the UK. The second photo is of the Control Tower at Bovingdon. Both of his birds had checked my RAF Bruntingthorpe Navigational Aids on numerous occasions.
Meeting these planes and crew was always an exciting event. Jack
