    Not to sure what to make of this all green colour scheme for this jag.
    Below - F104

    Some sort of structure or shelter amongst the undergrowth





    ..and finally a look back from the peri track at some of the great selection of classic jets etc at Bruntingthorpe. Whats good about here is that theres no fences around the aircraft and there are people actually working on the aircraft whilst you are there who are only to happy to chat and show you round there aircraft and inside the cockpits. Well worth a visit.

    steve, the one on the thread above, 2nd from last? looks interesting?

    It's amongst the old ex USAF parking pans where all the Cold War Jets are now parked up. As far as i can remember there's a few of them around the airfield. That one was in this general area below -

    I think you mean
    The remarkable story of how the U.S. Air Force accidentally dropped a nuclear weapon onto a little girls' playhouse in 1958

    Nukes at Bruntingthorpe mentioned

    Caution, newspaper story, not all facts may be accurate.....

    I have been racking my memory as to whether I listed my Flickr link for the RAF Bruntingthorpe images on my Flickr site. I reviewed all 31 pages of this thread and could not find a posting.

    Some of these images are mine, the rest are provided by many persons (American as well as British) anxious to spread the story of RAFB. At this time there are 317 images available. I have credited the providers in the description under each image.

    Please feel free to explore my entire Flickr site. There are many files with a variety of subject matter.

    If you have any photos of RAF Bruntingthorpe dating back to the USAF years (circa 1960), please get in touch with me. I upload most of the images sent to me.

    My email address: wjoycejack@sbcglobal.net

    Stevo, No, it didn't look like either of you photos. In reviewing this thread, I noticed I did not reply to your query. Sorry, I can only put it down to age.

    Here is a rough drawing of the installation of the LF Beacon at RAFB:

    A great day at Brunty as always...Thanks to Jason, Buccaneer, Chris Leach etc for the company.
