I was stationed at RAF Brungtingthorpe from 1959 thru 1962 when we returned the base to the RAF. I worked on the NW side of the Runway at B-thorpe and was frequently outside or in the USAF Control Tower. I often could see the Argosys taking off or landing at Bitteswell. The Argosys were such large aircraft, they appeared to be standing still at times.
The air traffic at Bitteswell and Bruntingthorpe were conflicting south of RAF Bruntingthorpe. The two control towers had a direct telephone line between them to cordinate all approaches and departures. Jack W
