Glad you had agood time Paul only hope the weather was better than here .
Are you coming to Ramsey this year ? if so it would be great to here what it was like .
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...
All the best,
A nice image none the less Paul.
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:
All the best,
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.

As you've probably gathered I've no idea what I'm doing with this picture uploading malarkey!

Excellent photos mate. Glad you enjoyed the day. That ROC post is in suprisingly good condition inside.
Was that the ROC that had the lump of concrete on top of the hatch for years?
