Day out at BBMF
The Big Red Removal Team enjoyed another interesting day out when we visited RAF Conningsby to take the BBMF tour. Our tour guide served during WW2 in the South East Asia Corps (SEAC) and had lots of fascinating stories to tell. Spitfires,Hurricanes and the Dakota were all on show, unfortunately the Lancaster was at Duxford for maintenance work. Guess we will have to go again another time!
Also on show 2 examples of the tall boy bombs, absolutely huge bombs that only Lancasters were capable of carrying that were designed to drop close to a target and still destroy it. We all had a great time and highly recommend a visit, reasonable admission prices too!
