Sorry, none of those bases. The city and region is still in conflict. The base was the site of the RAF's first involvement with moving large numbers of troops by air.

Thought someone would've had a go by now.......

Still an active airfield although not operated by the 'organisation' which originally built it. Close to the site of an infamous early 1900s shipwreck.

RETDPI is correct Again! The aircraft are RAAF Sabres at Labuan Borneo. (Lapangan Terbang Labuan, Sabah, Malaysia). You have control.

Looking south / southwest given the position of the sun. Runway in the background aligned east / west or southeast / northwest.

Variety of types including a glider by the looks of things and Typhoons.

Market Garden springs to mind so probably somewhere in East Anglia.
