I was there - and didn't they look handsome in that gorgeous scheme...
But those are not the Black Sheds, surely. Those are the original hangars opposite the spectator line and behind the participants' ramp.

I actually photographed XN769 being smashed up at West Drayton...was living just a few hundred yards away at the time... It was not done with finesse, I might add... A very brutal dismemberment.
Love that final shot of the line at Gutersloh, though... That's something else...

Great photos. How the mighty has fallen... The last photo of the final hurrah... The ac closest to the camera is XN728... 'The A1 lightning'.
Interesting that Ed Durham chose to fly 728 on that day, leading the formation around Germany.
Did you take the photos yourself? Fantastic!
