My apologies for the delay in response. I hate doing it but I have to declare open house.

Hello Pigboat
You obviously know this aircraft. Did you fly it ? I worked on it at Kenting 1980-1986. I hear its on its way back to the US from Lee-on-Solent. A fine aircraft!

Daviator01,

starboard engine was run (with no problems) yesterday for the first time in 7 years when Chuck and crew brought her from Duxford.

Greenham Common?

(I'm also confused by some stray posts about Catalina?)

Could it be Honington? Or maybe Sylt?

Not Coningsby. Picture was taken in the late 80s.

Clue: if the main picture was taken looking say North and West ( which it wasn't that would be too much of clue) this picture is of the same place and would have been taken looking south and west at almost a 45 degree bisect.
