RAF Croughton Gate Guardians

Went past today. Seem to remember they were an F-100 and and an F-105(?). When did they disappear - and where did they go?

The F-105 I believe went to the IWM at Duxford but has since regrettably moved on.

Both the F-100 and F-105 went to Molesworth and were scrapped there.

Duxford's Thud was a different airframe.

Duxford F-105 went to Poland I think. And yes both Croughton gate guards were scrapped.
