I was a BEA General Apprentice between 1965 and 1968 and despite working at LHR and Bealine House ( Inner marker for Northolt )
I took very few photos.However in March 1968 I got offered a trip on a BEA charter to Malta carrying Joan Collins and Antony Newley with attendant crew and equipment to make a film on said island.
On arrival were two Connies.One the L1649 enroute to JNB from LUX on a fuel stop,the other supposedly
impounded for gun running. BEA used Malta for crew training hence the second Vanguard.
Fast forward to 1979 driving between Monterrey and Fresno came across a big sign saying " Open Day Tomorrow ,Castle Airforce Base".Tomorrow duly visited
All these pics have been scanned in from prints whose quality is rather poor but shots of a working US Bomber Base in the 70's are not that common.
That's my excuse anyway.
