    Default RAF Long Marston Air craft collection

    What can I say. I drove past and noticed the Hunting Percival Pembroke and stopped to take a photo and to cut a long story short I was there for 2.5 hours and filled a 4GB card and i'm sure there is more within the grounds.
    I don't feel the need to say much I hope you enjoy the pictures! and my apologies for incorrect identification







    still a distinctive Buccaneer?


    Westland Whirlwind




    Shackleton

    you may want to click on the link to help you correct some of the identification errors in the text.Calling a Sea Prince a Pembroke is a easy mistake to make.But mistaking a Meteor for a Buccaneer is a new one.

    I think they held open air raves at Long Marston, hence the connection.
    Most of the smaller planes from this collection are now located at East Midlands Airports Aeropark (Hunter, Dove, etc).
