Lakenheath Pave Hawks

Post by VulcanDriver » 17 Jul 2019, 07:52

Did I imagine it or was there a FP made for the 56th Rescue Squadron at the Heath?

You did not imagine it.
It is included in the jyai_blackhawk_family_fs9_1.zip cunningly disguised as 'Traffic_LN_Helos.bgl'

Little use now of course, since the 56th RS moved to Aviano, Italy.

Not in my sim, they will stay where I put them :lol: .

In reality, if there new schemes and plans appear then I will probably move them.

Thats exactly the beauty of a sim. You can have it set-up Exactly as you want. i still have the Vulcan and a Sea Vixen flying around in my setup and they will stay there forever.

Exactly. I wish, I wish I could manipulate a paint proggie.

I would have 892 Sqn F-14Ks land based at Leuchars and 5, 11 and ETF F-15Ks based at Binbrook. Old airfields should never die - they should just get used for weird what if scenarios.

I have Wethersfield set up as the home of a joint UK-US Rapid Reaction Force, which gives me the excuse to have anything I want flying from there, and to modify the airfield in whatever way I want to accommodate them! Makes it a bit busy in Essex/Suffolk with modern-day Stansted and Southend plus 1991 Wattisham, Honington, Bentwaters and Woodbridge, 2019 Mildenhall and Lakenheath and a couple of WW2 strays from Wormingford, Raydon, Ridgewell etc!! It's my world, I'll have it how I want it!

I actually went to Wethersfield back in my Air Cadet days. We were based in the HAS compound where the 55th TFS had kept their F-100s. Their stickers and logo were still everywhere.
I remember when Honington boltholed there when i was based at Wattisham.

Steve, I've taken a C130 into Wethersfield on an anti-terrorist op at Stansted in the early '80s. I've glided from there in my own CCF days in the '60s, and I can remember when Wattisham boltholed there in the mid '70s. I can also remember the F100s being there in the mid '60s, and the many excellent families' days in those years.

I had forgotten about the Wattisham bolthole there, I was at Coningsby at the time.

Thinking about it, it may have been early 70s. We left Wattisham in 71, and I think it was just after that.
