    Dayton and Savannah are about equidistant from Washington and will prob cost you about $300 (I don't what that is in GBP) roundtrip airfare. If you drive, count on 10 hours or so each way. The National Museum certainly has a lot more a/c and all periods of aviation while Savannah focuses solely on the Mighty Eighth - awesome in its own right. If you came in summer, I'd go to Savannah as the nearby beaches are spectacular and the old town's setting is unique (in America anyways) and charming.

    Confirmation that the "mystery dispersed site" at Deenethorpe that isn't on the RSP is one, rather than a collection of packing cases:



    Not the clearest image I agree, it's a lot clearer on the film this is a still from...

    A couple more stills I took from the movie, showing a crew unloading on Dispersal 4, which still exists up by the remains of Home Farm Lodge at the north end of the airfield.
    B-17G 42-97780 IW-R "Blue Bomb Express" was regularly parked on this particular dispersal from November 1944 at least, and as she was one of the aircraft I've identified as having a camera on board during the filmed mission this is likely to be her crew too.

    Comparison photos taken this afternoon:

    A couple of weeks ago now (6 Sept) Stevie and I visited Deenethorpe, Desborough and Harrington in the late summer sunshine.

    It turned out to be a very enjoyable day and big thanks to Stevie for sharing his time and knowledge with me esp. as he was suffering with a bout of sciatica.

    Here are a few of the pics I took from Deenethorpe.

    Was that the ROC that had the lump of concrete on top of the hatch for years?
