So I went back for my final visit, got there at 9am, left at 7pm, thats 10 HOURS in the compound!!!

Found some new places I didn't get to last Sunday, The Flightshed, The Roof, The Tunnel network (there must be at least 3 miles of tunnels down there!!).

There were a few random ppl around but I didn't get any un-wanted attention. Ive taken a few more pics of the Silver TF sports car for all those rover fans who seem to think its a prototype?!
