Further to my previous post.
1st: A photo of 47 Sqdn dispersal from the Shippon crash gate. We used to fight over who would used the wing de-icer wand, the only warm thing out there.
2nd: See the pan behind the row of officers married quarters. We had to park a u/s kite there one day but as we turned her round to face the exit, she began to sink though the concrete. Paniced yells of "Keep moving" persuaded the Centurian Tug driver to do just that and we managed to get her back onto the peri track. Those small pans were never intended for heavy transports.
3rd: Behind "The large hanger" there used to be the Salvation Army Club and every weekday morning at 10 o'clock, there was a mad dash for anyone near enough, to get in line for coffee and HOT JAM DOUGHNUTS covered with oodles of sugar. Talk about tooth rot and feeding the animals at the zoo. Good fun though.
More Happy Days.
