    Q you fooled Canberra by moving the big flying club south of the border to that wonderful county of Yorkshire !!!!

    talking of Yorks I hear they have a new form of stimulating _____ --------------- its called E By Gum !!

    Right after that corny joke here is a slightly later shot of Leuchars showing 2 TACR2s & 2 TACR2As. The old pair had had their brush bars painted to black after Q's shot was taken.

    And I should also say it wasnt until Id been at Leuchars a year on my third tour that I noticed Strathkinned mast!

    But I have to ask when the photo of the TACRS was taken, and why Leuchars had four? Two or even three I can imagine, but four?

    Good to see 4 x TACRís and 2 x Mk11ís all serviceable at the same time......must have been a rare occasion! The only reason i can think for Leuchars having 4 TACR's is the 2 old GS TACR's were being replaced by the new Carmichael TACR's?

    Another one from Leuchars:

    Canberra just as Q says, it was march 1988, The 2 new TACR2As in the centre made by Carmichael have just arrived to replace the 2 old TACR 2s made by Gloster Saro.

    Q on the fire station thread you included Leuchars as a Yorks location- that is why Canberra really didn't recognise it. tomorrow I will post some shots of the 1933 , 1938, guardroom and 1956 fire sections. The current one included the 2 1956 bays and the watch office became the ADOs office.

    Q when was the picture taken of the Leuchars RHAG? Im curious as its been taken on runway 22, it didnt always have a RHAG. When I was first there it had a PUAG.

    Canberra, yes it was a PUAG, it was taken out not long after I arrived as it had been put in purely for Phanton training for the ARK Royal mob. . Hence the the title Purpose Use Arrestor Gear--- used routinely not just in an emergency. I would suggest Q's pic is merely a caption error. The cable and doughnuts were identical.

    Now this is not a Airfield vehicle, but this photo was given to me by my late Granddad, he is the driver, and i would like to find out what type of appliance he was driving...

    Do you know what brigade it was? It would be difficult to tell the make of chassis although it may be possible to identify the body buider.
