They were taken down in 2016. Sources say they went to Molesworth for storage and eventual disposal. They were utterly corroded inside after years of no maintenance.

Thanks for the updates, deleted from the map. 

One problem with something this size: it will never be up to date.  I started it in 2015, and I try to keep things current, but just never know.  I appreciate your corrections.

Just passed 12,000 entries.  1941 museums, 8946 gate guards etc., 1135 miscellaneous (memorials, replicas, ones deep in amusement parks you have to pay to reach, etc.)

Just noticed this    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lincolnshire-6113992  on the BBC news website.  Report below


A church is hoping to raise £18,000 to install a stained glass window commemorating the Dambusters.

Scampton Church wants the window installed to mark the 80th anniversary of the founding of 617 Squadron at RAF Scampton in 1943.

The "bouncing bomb" raids on targets in Germany during World War II set off from the RAF station.

The church said the project would be a "meaningful tribute".

RAF Scampton is due to close by 31 December and the church installed a window referencing the base last year.

Joe Bartrop, project coordinator, said the new window would be "a sister" to the existing one.

"The whole idea is that the whole of the south wall of the nave will be a lasting memory and a meaningful tribute to RAF Scampton," he said.

"If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you....."
It  means that you read  the instruction sheet

No problem.  Just plugging away.  I keep an eye out for armor and stuff for you when I'm traveling.

Captain Canada is big on armor.  Whenever I am planespotting I keep an eye out for armor, and he has found loads of planes on his trips.

They messed up my work visa application twice. The second time my Nexus card was revoked, as they think I will sneak over to work. Been battling for about a year now to get both back. Quite maddening I mut say, as now I cannot travel for work or pleasure. Hopefully it gets resolved and I can start travelling again !
