P-51 in the RAF Museum. It is not an actual 357th FG Mustang, but has been restored as Jack Cleland's Isabel III. This Mustang was actually tail number 44-73415 and was given to the RAF Museum by Eagle Squadron Association, San Diego around 1986. Quite a mystery airframe. Photos and history from Dave Burrow.



1/3rd scale Nooky Booky IV

1/3rd scale Nooky Booky IV. The 1/3rd scale replica is located outside of the Cakes & Ale caravan Parksocial club, on the site of the old Leiston airfield. The aircraft was restored by the men of the 48th Equipment Maintenance squadron RAF Lakenheath. We accomplished all the restoration on our own time after and before our duty day. It took us only 14 days to completely restore this aircraft, we also did some minor fiberglass repairs to the plane as well. The list of people who helped me out greatly were MSgt Clark, A1C Kremer, & SrA Cochran. Thanks for your help Jim and here is a picture of us restoring the plane in the Corrosion Control Hanger.  SSgt Douglas S. McGraw
