G'day Terrence

The B-47-equipped 100th, 301st and 98th Bomb Wings used Bruntingthorpe for short periods. I beleive the mid-to latter 1950's.

RB-66B's of the 19th TRS/10th TRW were based there in 1960.

Terenceskip..There's a really interesting thread developing over at the Airfield Information Exchange that looks as though it may help you in your search...
