Leconfield At Home Day 1966 - World Cup Day

Postby relight9 » Wed Sep 19, 2007 4:44 pm

Hi
Could i ask if anyone has any memories of the Battle of Britain At Home Day on the day of the World Cup in 1966 at RAF Leconfield ?
I am looking for information on an aircraft that attended the show, a Jet Provost XS186.
A notebook log, or better still a photograph in someone's box of old photo's would be great !
This aircraft is now being restored to flying condition, and we are trying to trace it's RAF service history which may have included the show at Leconfield on that famous day ( i bet the crowd was a bit light considering the match !)
Thanks
Paul

Just a bump on this request for information from 2007!

We are still going strong with XS186, who attended this fair county's air show at Leconfield on World Cup Day in 1966!
