Hi,

The Steel Blue Elan at RAF Honington is mine, but I've just moved down to Marlow, Bucks.

The search for the missing airman, Corrie, continues and police are now searching through 8000 tonnes of rubbish at a landfill site in Cams. The police appear confident that they will find his body there. He's been missing for over 6 months now.

Are you still stationed there.
It was parked outside the biological warfare building.

Think the runway at Honington looks more like a chicane now.
