RE: Existing Buildings & Accoutrements


AVGAS was the Octane John that fuelled piston engined aircraft

AVTUR was the turbine fuel that provided the fuel for Jets [Gas turbines]

AVTAG was also used by jets

The Americans used JP4 [Jet, Petroleum] in their kites such as F86's, F100's etc

Are the fuel tanks located in the wood just west of the control tower? Can someone provide a Google Earth of Flashearth map link, please?

Thanks,
Tommy

Existing Buildings at Martlesham Heath


On the junction of the A1214 Road and Portal Avenue can be found these Offices now used by Suffolk Police, in 1960 [my time] this house was the living accomodation for the AOC-in-C 11 Group Fighter HQ
