Hi all, i'm new around here. Had this place on my camera for a wee while so thought it's about time i shared;)

Visited twice in the same week hence the difference in camera quality(One was with a dreaded mobile phone)

Once access was sorted, i set about my way snapping away with me point & Shoot. It's quite a treasure trove once in but please do not be led into a false sense of tranquility. It's normally running alive with M.O.D guys with the runway in constant use. Please also be aware if you are planning a trip over that it's a very LIVE site and firearms training takes place regularly. You can hear shots all over the place:eek: Anyway, i normally waffle on so i'm going to keep things relatively short. Sorry if it's pic heavy Admin, delete as appropriate;)

Piccy wiccys.

Great pictures, don't live far from there but never been (by the way it's in Leicestershire not Northants) another great place is RAF spade adam near Carlisle. Check it out on google maps as its set out as a russian airfield and used to be where they tested the Thor icbm's.

It was Blue Streak in its various guises as a IRBM and as the first stage of the Europa satellite launcher that was tested at Spadeadam, not Thor.

I thought Rutland was part of Leicestershire and I was wrong it wasn't the Thor missile that was tested at RAF Spadeadam it was Blue steel as corrected. Should have checked first instead of doing a quick reply, I still thought the pictures are good ones.
