    I’ve just been looking at Simon’s tour in 2002 on his web site urbex UK “the usaf have left the building” its nice to see that the place has continued to survive so well:) unlike so many others, Upwood has been on my list for a while now and I think its time to have a look .

    hence the pump and I suppose the American style fire hydrants, of which I don't recall seeing on any of the operational bases I have lived on in the past.
    Theres American style fire hydrants at RAF Kemble (Gloucestershire) painted a
    bright yellow, Kemble was used by the USAF for a while in the 90's.

    Airsoft is a bit like paintball but instead of firing paintballs you fire a 6mm
    plastic ball, the guns run on either gas or electric and can fire at similar
    rates to the real thing.

    Wiki page on Airsoft.

    RAF Upwood, Urban Assault airsoft link. Damn I missed the Jan 4th
    Night Pistol and Shotgun Game, actually I bet that would be a good
    laugh though airsoft doesn't half sting.

    Their next event is Saturday 31st Mar Full Day.
