The jaguars were parked up in the purpose-built revetments now used as a moto-cross site. How they got there I have no idea.

You can tell a builder from an archaeologist by the size of his trowel. Mine is a small one!

Anyone got any hard evidence such as photos or TNA references that this Jaguar malarky ever took place, or is it just folklore? I spent three years on the Jag force and I never ever heard of it actually being done. We did in Germany though.

I saw a photo online yesterday of a loaded-up Jag being demonstrated on the M55 just before it opened, if that's any use.....

I'm trying to find out when the quarry that now holds the moto-cross circuit closed.
My dad used to pass the spot twice a day from the late 50s to the mid 70s and can't remember anything other than the missiles.

All the best,
PB

I remember the Jag landing on the M55. As for Jags using Woolfox lodge? No never heard of it, sure they werent Harriers? The Harriers also used Barkston Heath a couple of times.

No evidence just someone from Coltishall reporting for AR a long time ago.

Somewhere about I have a similar photo in an ancient copy of Aviation News. Was it some sort of press release?

I think the Jag on the M55 was a PR exercise by BAC(as it was then called), IIRC as well as the press it was on the TV. And it was june 1975!

I have pics when we put Jags and Harriers down on an autobahn in Germany (they did it with Tornado later). I still do not believe that this was ever done at Woolfox - unless anyone has any evidence, of course. I'm afraid that Jerry's pic does not float my boat on this - yet, anyway.
