I recall seeing a line up of 145sq marked Lightnings on the line at Coltishall when I visited in 1970..

I wonder if this isn't a bit too obscure, but anyway see what you make of it.

Not Booker/WAP or Old Sarum either. Time for a clue maybe. Quite a small place, no military connections.

Not Sleap. The hangar is distinctive. The aircraft on that day were a mix of visitors and based, typical of the place although that particular day there were more visitors than usual.
