You may have read the recent comments between Tom and me on his Jav posting, re maintaining classic aircraft in a difficult economic climate. At the former RAF base at Flixton, Norfolk, there is a Jav, Vixen, Meteor, Mig, and a host of peripheral aircraft-related items, all lovingly maintained on a nominal budget.
From the same base, in WWII, American air crews rose from East Anglia into icy miles above Europe.
A few aircraft here. Many ghosts.
