RAF Newton was the venue for a little midlands meet I organized. Was a very good day out, got to see most of it without any hassle. Thanks to all those that joined us :)

A little history for those that don't know it...

RAF Newton was used briefly as a bomber base and then as a flying training school during World War II. The station became the headquarters of No 12 Group, Fighter Command from 1946 until 1958, when Technical Training Command took over the station for electronic fitters courses. The station became the home of the RAF School of Education in1972, and also the RAF Police Training School in 1973. The base closed in 1996.

Won't bore you with too many pics as Ive taken so many here before!
