Civvies drive around RAF base taking photos!

'Suddenly I realised it wasn't an open day - there were no refreshment stalls,' Mr Awad said. 8)



They couldn't see the "refreshment stalls" because they were obscured by the RAF Reg WMIKs parked outside.

Civvies taking photos on or around an RAF airfield. Must be a slow news day. In RAFG and in particular Gütersloh we had a semi permanent detachment of plane spotters (thinly disguised NVA) on the boundary fence taking shots of anything and everthing that flew in and out. Then there were the "lost" eastern block "civvy" aircraft that strayed over or near military airfields. This latest is a non event.

The guy on the gate that waved em through has been offered a senior position with the UK Border Force, and they have also had a whip round to purchase his discharge.

Same as nearly every airbase in the world,RAF,USAF whatever....At Kinloss we regulary had people walking along the beach at the back of the ESA & down past the dog section,thru the NMSU & out of the back gate.....We got flagged down by a couple once when we was going to the ESA & asked "Is this an airfield?"...I shit you not!

Well, they had no chance of taking photos of any military importance. Nothing vaguely military occurs on a Crab base.

Not true, I distinctly remember the odd thing occurring that probably most definitely could be described as vaguely military.

I don't know. During the foot & mouth epidemic we used to deploy to RAF stations as the usual training areas were OOB. My (then) Squadron quadrupled the militaryness and allyness of the places one hundredfold, even though we were a NC NCRS Subunit.

Factually incorrect. The RAF Reg were distracted by one of the spotters who was offering knock off Oakleys at very low prices. This enabled spotter #2 to enter a Chinook from the rear and commence furious masturbation ops.

The refreshment tents were actually obscured by two fat sweaty MPGS who belatedly realised that they had dropped one massive bollock by not doing thier job correctly.
