When at Leeming I was called onto the scene of a JP crash (1968?) in which the solo student pilot was killed. (Ejected too low). The aircraft wreckage was surrounded by a ring of dead cows most on their back with legs in the air apparently killed by the shock of the impact in their midst so seeing the photo in that news cutting of a heifer licking an ejection seat implies the herd were some distance away. The top section of the ejection gun is lying next to the seat so at that point it has been disconnected from the seat by someone.

The entrance to the station has moved since I last visited Syerston which would have been in 1969....
After all the demolitions it looks very different now

The Officers Mess on the other side of the A46 is pretty trashed

A shame really. They were well built permanent buildings.

Yes, they've stood up to a lot over the years. They where really trashed by 'the locals' for years once they where left open to the elements & then they where subjected to the fire as well.

Seeing netcompsys's photos above reminded me I still hadn't uploaded some photos I took of the Officers Mess in 2016. A very sorry-looking set of photos unfortunately....

More as thumbnails...
