The Colerne asbestos problem has been running for some time. Prior to 3 AEF moving there from Hullavington, we "commuted" the Chipmunks on a daily basis while asbestos was allegedly removed from the roof of the hangar. The one by the old control tower next to the main domestic site. This was late '92/ early '93.
The Bulldog era seemed to pas without any asbestos scares but from Sep '07 Colerne was closed again for asbestos removal from the same hangar. By Nov '07 the Tutors were at Lyneham and "commuting" daily again. Early 2008 we were back using the hangar at Colerne again.
So the latest decamp to Boscombe is the third asbestos episode in 30 years!

I wonder who did the removals and who checked it had been removed!
