Well done! Flap40 has it.

Luqa, getting a bit of a bashing at some time in the War. Looks a bit different to more recent times doesn't it? No V-Force-friendly runways at this stage.

I couldn't say 'close but no cigar' earlier as it would have given the game away completely!

Over to you, Flap40...

Think that's RAF Ibsley, Spit and Tiffie base. Believe yank P47s there for a while too..................Open house if correct.


Re previous, was pretty certain it was Malta. I knew it wasn't Hal Far - not sure why Luqa didn't seem to feature.......
