Hi All

A few more from the archives. Its amazing to think but growing up living near to Upper Heyford I took the F-111 for granted thinking they & the base would be around for ever, how wrong we were.. A real beast of an aircraft & sadly missed.

Lovely shots. Growing up in Wolverton, MK, always used to see these daily turning onto final approach when 27 was in use. Skies over here now fairly quiet. Spent many an afternoon after school at the 27 app end ( courtesy of a lift from my brother). Sadly missed but happy memories. Cheers for the pics Big Crow.

Steve.
PS Just picked up a copy of the book 'ONE _ELEVEN DOWN by Schiffer - well recommended a great read.
