    I remember the man flying it at airshows in the 80's. He was lost in a Provost crash which was down to an engine fatique issue if memory serves.

    Yes I remember it flying when I was younger, I was unfortunate enough to have seen the Provost wreckage just after it was recovered, a horrible sight.
    As a huge Fairey fan (no comments please!) it was gutting news.

    Yes for a man with such a large amount of flying experience it was a tragic end. I can still see in my minds eye the Flycatcher displaying.

    Cracking shots, especially knowing what the lighting conditions are like there.

    Default RNAS Yeovilton - Old Control Tower dimensions?

    I've been looking at images of the old control tower at RNAS Yeovilton (HMS Heron) but have not been able to identify any dimensions.

    Can anyone here please help by providing any data or links?

    Thanks

    Mike
