Thanks, working at it. Luton time restricted to an airline which failed in 1999. Another episode of fun though.

OH while I think!

I can't post because the last one was mine.

JENKINS 24th Nov 2018 20:36

Here's one. At this field flew one of my favourite sportsmen, gave a succinct definition of 'stress.' Soon be bedtime, I used to sleep near here at one stage of my varied airline career.https://cimg4.ibsrv.net/gimg/pprune....c0e5b0fd62.jpg

JENKINS 24th Nov 2018 20:46

On reflection, pressure rather than stress was defined.

Gliding...……?

dook 25th Nov 2018 08:46

I've been trying to find this to no avail.

It looks to be UK.

Was it used for model flying ?

JENKINS 25th Nov 2018 09:45

Believe no gliding, no knowledge of model flying. Former colleague, back-seater Sea Vixen, flew his own machine there, and I believe another colleague, WIWOL and back-seater Sea Venom, may have visited on occasion.

Noel Coward was mistaken.

Great Massingham. OH.

JENKINS 25th Nov 2018 09:55

That's it. Keith Miller, fine cricketer, flew there and later discussed pressure in relation to Test Match cricket.

OH declared. Paddyboy knows his North Norfolk fields!

Not unlike Church Fenton.

Discorde 25th Nov 2018 10:57

Exactly like Church Fenton! I removed the YUAS clue from the hangar on the right but you didn't need it anyway!

dook 25th Nov 2018 11:06

Takes me back a bit - I last flew out of there in 1967!! We are the same age.

Church Fenton...OH if correct

Too late....!!

#10103 looks like a graveyard for S-Vixens...N-Irn...?

Too late....!!
Catch up number four. ;)

They are not Sea Vixens.

Discorde 25th Nov 2018 11:39

Dook - were you in Leeds UAS?

dook 25th Nov 2018 11:52

No. I was holding at the air experience flight flying Chipmunks after my Valley course on the Gnat, before moving to Chivenor on the Hunter course.

sycamore 25th Nov 2018 12:26

Could be `Floggers fins` on an airfield in the M-East,or dhows on a river....
PS ,I was always #4(the Tanker) in the `Green Barrows` Formation Team....(C130)...

dook 25th Nov 2018 12:28

I think they may be Floggers but it's not in the Middle East.
