    It can't be, can it? The hours I've spent poring over the various years on the different site! It certainly fits, bieng circular. Any chance of a quadrant or two as well
    Just to be sure though, it's not to do with one of those lighty things is it? It is on the appraoch to one of the runways.

    Many thanks Paul. I'm convinced it is the target site but how long did it take to find it? My search area was slightly further east and this area was covered in trees on the earlier dates (my excuse anyway).

    For info Lakenheath's range had a danger radius of 750yds and was used day and night.

    Comparing the historic GE image with the current ones, it appears the outer runway lighting bar (?) crosses the (seemingly well plastered) target.
    The course of the straight bar can be seen in the image above running upwards from the concrete pad lower left, cutting the target circle at about 9 o'clock and 11 o'clock.

    How long to find? About 4 minutes.

    All the best,
    Paul

    Right, I have a list for you then.......

    It was surprisingly close to the original airfield but then again Sutton Walk was close to Woodbridge and an unkwon one near to Sculthorpe.

    Even then I had to look hard at Paul's image before I saw the circle and cross marking. Probably due to lack of scale; the eye is deceived!

    Now we know that Paul is not busy chasing THOR and 8th USAAF relics he wont mind getting a search list!

    The 81st FS are currently deployed at the 'Heath if anyone fancies recapturing the good old days when A-10's roamed the skies of East Anglia!
