RAF Upper Heyford

Postby Varkman on Wed 26 Jun 2019, 6:56 pm

RAF Upper Heyford was a massive part of my world in the late 80’s early 90’s.
To the point that I did this for the site with Paul Tiller back in 2005.

Been going back over my UH Images and I have now produced Two books that are available online
Softback and in e-book format.

Shame this is only focussed on the F-111 as a lot of photos from the shows in the '60s and '70s would have been great - a missed opportunity? I really miss those Upper Heyford Armed Forces Day shows.

I only have the photos i have. Which is 90% F-111s at Upper Heyford. I may do something with the 10% in another book.

Same here. Especially remember perhaps the last time I was there walking around taking photos with 'Sunshine on a Rainy Day' blasting out on the tannoy.

Currently reconnected with a friend of mine (after 35 years) who was a Tech Sarg. on the one elevens, both Spark and conventional in the last 10 years of Heyford.

He's got some nice photographs taken with him and the sparks (one with great nose art) at the time. I'll try and borrow them and put in the right section here if anyone's interested?

I for one will never turn down the chance to see images of F-111s! :love:
