  9. ISTR only part of full metal jacket was filmed at bassingborne ,as i spent about 4 weeks with the crew the assault course was built far side of air field also a small camp was built on the out runway area with parm trees planted along side , the main square was used with the phone boxes covered with fences the road from hq building past the med centre had signs put in place, the best time during the filming was when the village camp got blown up most of the depot as then turned out to watch best time i can recall at depot 82/86

    You can chant anything you fancy at ATR(B). It's a very easy going atmosphere.

    As for 'Full Metal Jacket', some scenes were shot in a derelict brick factory, in another part of Cambs, and a large number of scenes were filmed in the Docklands area.

    But be warned, we still have 'Charlie' in the boonies here.
