Back in December I suggested we could do 3 RAF bases in a day, first people said I was mad, then they said they wanted to come with. As always not everyone could make the day, so we set 2 days. Then Cavewheel pointed out that that should mean 6 different bases in 2 days…! Eventually we done 5, as some were just too far away, and the days too short.

Day 1: RAF Upwood Huntingdon / Cambridgeshire.
This place is massive (over 100 buildings), and a revisit for us all. (Ubdvcv, Muffin, Cavewheel, & Myself). Arriving on site we noticed 4 people walking around with air rifles, we kept our distance but made our presence noticed as not to startle them!

We bumped into another group exploring the Officers mess, who actually run the official Upwood site! After half hour friendly chat :) we went our different ways:

Cavewheel in the cinema: Even less seating than my original report:




In the Gas Decontamination Centre


Obligatory Tank shots ahoy:


Cavewheel in one of the tanks. You can rotate the turret 360 degrees as well as up and down! :D

The police did roll by while we were there, but just had a slow drive-by. More to follow…
