    My own memories of Ackilngton were during the early 60's of the Battle of Britain days (are any held these days?). Apart from the resident Jet Provosts, I recall a Beverley performing a short landing and discharging a large number of troops (or so it appeared) including a miltary band, a FAA Buccaneer S1 (I think it was just entering service) from Lossiemouth and a Mosquito TT35 from the CAACU at Exeter. Those were the days!
