Shady is correct. Bolling AFB, (KBOF), in Washington, DC, is restricted to rotary-wing operations only. Your turn.

Nit pick warning.

Are you sure there is any flying at Bolling AFB these days? My impression is that it's entirely devoted to residential quarters - look at Google Earth.

The helicopters for the US president are based at the Anacostia Naval Air Station which abuts Bolling on the north.


Edited to add that I wasn't suggesting that it was Anacostia, just filling in the present status of Bolling.

No! I am not sure! It is, indeed, Bolling Air Force Base. You have CONTROL!

I did wonder about Anacostia too but the buildings were on the opposite side: the lettering on the Hangar gave the clue that the photo hadn't been accidentally reversed. OK another real easy on for early Sunday morning.

3 minutes, told you it was easy. Scampton, formerly home to The Dambusters, latterly, 27,35 and 617Sqns and 230 OCU, then the Central Flying School and the Arrows. LFT has control.

Is it Tangmere, prior to more re-devolepment? If it is - open house as still getting used to the 'posting pictures malarky'.

Re the earlier post of Bolling Air Force Base.

The name rang a bell and sure enough my log book shows I flew into Bolling, Washington DC on 16 July 1961 from Wright-Patterson (Ohio) and flew out the same day to McGuire AFB (New Jersey).

I don't recall that rather massive Bolling hangar though.
