You may well be right, the stations known as the "Clutch" all sat close by one another along the Dutch Border. They were all built from the Kartoffel Feldt up and were probably Historic as being the...

I would have thought the poor wretches trying to get to the UK would be best advised to stay put in France! Haven't they heard of Brexit and what's going to happen to us!

IUR ?

Just wondering if anyone can answer the following, does anyone know what the initials IUR stand for in relation to the Panavia Tornado? i.e. UE is made up of 12 GR1s plus one IUR.
