    Visited North Luffenham again last month as I do a few times each year, there are a lot of vehicles being stored there now and the old perrytrack / runway is open as far as where the old MIDRAD was but thats about as far as I went, didnt want to go any further incase I got me collar felt by the MOD or Military police

    i was posted here from 2005 till 2007 when i was in the kings own border regiment, absolute brilliant place to be posted, gorgeous camp with everything that could be needed i was annoyed when they sent me from there to catterick. i would of stayed in 22 years if i could of stayed there what an awesome place.
    no need to be worried about scouting the runway or any other part of the back area, some of it has been converted into a golf course for the locals so you wont get in trouble just dont scramble that perimiter fence otherwise you will be in trouble lol

    Them bombs in pic 5 are 1000lb General Purpose bombs,
    they do have tails fitted to them which are either slick or retarding.
    slick ones are just solid tails, retarder ones contain a parachute.
    i have a peice of a retarder in my garage, which i got from cowden ranges on east coast..
