    Not permanently! This was 41(F) Sqn "Bolthole" from Coltishall between Mar-Sep 82 whilst the runway was re-done.

    This was the base main standby generator that was installed in 1970 after the base was reopened by the USAF in 1969.
    It was started automaticaly by means of compressed air in the event of a mains failure.I was present at the first start up
    and this was followed by a BBQ in celebration!!!!!!.I worked on the base from 1969/1976 maintaining all the non tactical radio
    systems ie fire crash/security etc.

    Thanks for that information, it truly is an awsome engine. I would love to have seen and heard that running.

    Myself Jason and Bomber spent a very enjoyable few hours yesterday looking over Sculthorpe. Shame to see the state the barrack blocks have now become but great to explore never the less -





















    A few more coming up....
