can you confirm location of concrete plinth and man hole please?
It's amongst the old ex USAF parking pans where all the Cold War Jets are now parked up. As far as i can remember there's a few of them around the airfield. That one was in this general area below -
Some of the story here. Hmmmmm...
I think you mean
The remarkable story of how the U.S. Air Force accidentally dropped a nuclear weapon onto a little girls' playhouse in 1958
Nukes at Bruntingthorpe mentioned
Caution, newspaper story, not all facts may be accurate.....
I have been racking my memory as to whether I listed my Flickr link for the RAF Bruntingthorpe images on my Flickr site. I reviewed all 31 pages of this thread and could not find a posting.
Some of these images are mine, the rest are provided by many persons (American as well as British) anxious to spread the story of RAFB. At this time there are 317 images available. I have credited the providers in the description under each image.
Please feel free to explore my entire Flickr site. There are many files with a variety of subject matter.
If you have any photos of RAF Bruntingthorpe dating back to the USAF years (circa 1960), please get in touch with me. I upload most of the images sent to me.

Stevo, No, it didn't look like either of you photos. In reviewing this thread, I noticed I did not reply to your query. Sorry, I can only put it down to age.
Here is a rough drawing of the installation of the LF Beacon at RAFB:

Brilliant photos there Richard. Love the first Chippie pic. The Dak and Anson break looks very nice as well. I would have definitely have gone to Abingdon this year had it not clashed with Bruntingthorpes Cold War Jets Day...talking of which...here's some of my pics -
A great day at Brunty as always...Thanks to Jason, Buccaneer, Chris Leach etc for the company.
Two photos from Nigel Bailey-Underwood taken on 28 May 1960
