    Hi Paul

    I considered doing Mount Pleasant a while back but stopped due to lack of information, photos. I did get some and I did build the shelters for the fighter aircraft and started to model the main hangar but that's about it. If you would like to use them then send me a PM on ACG.

    Paul,

    Its true, pictures are few and far between of MPA, but it cant be that difficult! It features on Google maps (as does stanley complete with Black Buck crater scars) and the buildings are all pretty much built to the same pattern, so you should be able to pull a few pictures off the net somewhere.

    Hangarettes are all the same as are Sqn buildings and that only leaves the likes of the timmy hangar and 78's, would be cool to see tho!!

    Hi my dads got some great photos of the base from when he was there in august 91. When I am next up there I will get copies and get them put up.

    I can't imagine why anyone would want to do anything about MPA other than get the hell out of it pronto! IMHO, an absolute hell-hole!

    Never mind about RAF Mount Pleasant (and I was part of the team that did the original siting for that place!)
    What about RAF Stanley? Where, if anywhere, is the history of that short lived RAF Station to be found? I did 4 years (on and off) at Stanley. Most of what happened there would not be believed - but it should be recorded somewhere!

    Remember finding the ATC Stanley logbooks in a few filing cabinets in 1992 in MPA ATC, they made interesting reading especially the various Harrier crashes and other incidents. Would guess they would have been disposed of soon after !
