    I believe there's a photo in the relevant volume of 'Action Stations' of a ramp in use in the Province. Might not have been LK.

    Hi,
    I DO have a photo and tried to attach it but it is too large.
    Re the other ramp mentioned. I know the picture you refer to and it is not like that. This ramp is about 25 / 30 feet long.

    Interesting. Motorcycle inspection ramp perhaps?

    I have put a picture of this ramp on my website along with some other piccies of one of the hangars, EWS sign etc.
    Please take a look - The fencing in the background should hopefully give some idea of scale. Each section of fence is about 6 feet wide so you will see this is BIG!

    Default Can You Identify These Buildings for me please?

    I was having a look around Long Kesh yesterday (It was an Open Day by the Ulster Aviation Society and was Fantastic!!) and took the opportunity to photograph the buildings shown here.

    I have a plan of the Airfield but nothing is mentioned regarding these which are quite close to two Bellman Hangars.

    I have no idea what they would have been used for so any assistance would be much appreciated.

    Thanks Folks.

    Default Is This a Military Item??

    I was visiting a number of locations yesterday including the old Operations Block at Long Kesh which is now used to keep pigs!

    Whilst wandering around inside I say this trolley.

    I wonder if it is connected to the old airfield and if so what it was used for.

    Any help would be appreciated.trolley in long kesh ops block 1.jpg

    Yes. It is a trolley for either a flight-line Fire Extinguisher or a gas cylinder such as Acetylene (welding) or Nitrogen (aircraft servicing). The base of the cylinder stood in the 'tray' and strap attached to the horizontal bar secured it.

    I have been looking at a plan of the Long Kesh site and see that some distance from the airfield (Beside the Cemetery on Blaris Road) was "Camp Lodge" which appears to have a few old buildings.
    Has anyone any idea what this was used for?
