    A few of us used to sit on the old concrete Battle HQ bunker in the glorious summer months and watch these bloody things for the best part of a week at a time. There were so many aircraft visiting Binbrook back in those days including shedloads of European types. Good times. Sadly we couldn't even defend ourselves from a fart now.

    Another shot from RAF Binbrook during the summer of 1979/1980.

    Northrop F5E Tiger at RAF Binbrook. I think that this is from the Royal Netherlands Airforce. Again back around 1979/1980.

    English Electric F6 Lightning H 5 Squadron by Shaun Haselden, on Flickr


    Didn't do much of a job squaring up the horizon on this shot. 'H' 5 Squadron at RAF Binbrook. I once printed a Cibachrome of this slide that went to the pilot on that particular day.

    Again, so many memories.

    I bet that picture is still hanging on his wall.

    I stood on the edge of the apron and watched a flight of them take off once, think that was the year before they were taken out of service.

    The American AWACs used to fly over our school regularly too I think it was based near Lincoln where the Red Arrows are. Heading out towards the North Sea presumably.

    Must have made an epic noise.

    I have to say the Tornado never inspired me as a youngster like the Lightning or even the Buccaneer and Phantom in use back then. The image of them ground hopping and dropping airfield denial weapons never quite did it for me. And they looked plain uninspiring even in interceptor mode with wings swept back and 4 missiles on the belly, were they AMRAAMs?
