    Just don't see these down my way. We've very few airfields too it seems.

    Yeovils' Westlands aircraft factory had its own decoy apparently, and was itself disguised somehow according to local accounts.

    Thanks for posting Rich.

    I suspect the Starfish bunker is the larger of the two. The oil terminal / naval is probably one in the same and the smaller of the two
    It was me I ate all the pies.
