    Default Raf coltishall..(permission visit)


    this is a place i have been wanting to go to for so long,so when the opportunity came up for a visit i snapped it up.we visited the station HQ,ops bunker,ATC tower,sergeants mess,swimming pool,gymnasium,and med centre.i really enjoyed my time here.and I am really hoping for a return visit....the station shut down in 2006 just before the Jaguars that had been based here were decommissioned.they saw active service during the gulf war.without a single loss of a plane,coltishall was active during the war as a british fighter station,and was the last Battle of Britain station in active use when it shut.the airfield was bought by norfolk county council,it's future use is not totally certain yet.



















































    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    Oh look at the old place! I was based there. Sad to see the place like this.....the station commander when I was there was a stickler for the station looking immaculate. I swear he spent more on paint than jet A1
    A glooming peace, this morning with it brings. The sun for sorrow dare not show its face
