A couple of old tiny photos at Brize

Post by Murray Keene » Sat Mar 21, 2015 12:43 pm

I now spend vast amounts of time photographing things however I cannot believe all the years I was at Brize Norton I only had a useless 110 camera and took only a few good pics. I DID have hundreds but as I say they all got lost when my worldly goods went down the Thames with the negatives. VC10's at Greenham Common, displays you name it after I bought my first SLR. Very upset is an understatement but ONLY at the loss of the photos, everything else is replaceable :-({{|=

My barrack room was right next to the runway so we had a good view, also when Concorde was at BZN crew training I was pulled out of the hat to go for a jolly!

the first no idea as I was shooting the Vulcan we hoped to buy with our preservation group!
2 pics here - the second I believe was 806, spent many hours on circuit bumps in her!

I have 3 very old promo films of the VC10 showing scenes shot at Wisley etc not sure if I can upload these, they are classics that my dad got for me years ago.

(ah ok tried to attach one - no joy how can I share these films?)

Hi Murray, could you check how big the files are? You can email them too me if they are not too large, otherwise I'll set up another transfer method. I can then upload them so they can be shared.

You were pretty close, I fixed it for you by removing the 'code' tags and also removing the 's' from the 'https' at the beginning.

ahh thank you

Heres the other 2

I like in the second one the stewardess saying " you may now smoke if you wish!" There used to be ash trays in the RAF ones too and you could smoke!
