Re: Request F-4C Mildenhall July 1986

Just found some more info the date 707 was airlifted to Lakenheath from Mildenhall,

First attempt was on 1/8/90 by a US Army CH-47 however it was too heavy, some more kit was removed and then was lifted on 18/9/90.

Thought this might help in pining down any photos of the Lift
