Yeah, as you can see in Bing maps (MSFS), the Cold War era hardened concrete hangers are gone for the most part on this end of the field.
I remember these as a boy being a major view riding my bicycle around base. There was also the constant sound of aircraft in aferburner, sonic booms overhead, and a small PA speaker in our quarters often announcing alerts.
But some remain at the other end.
RAF Woodbridge has a very interesting history, beginning with its construction during WW2 as one of the three airfields built to receive battle damaged aircraft returning from missions. You can see in the photo above, the WW2 wide runway (9000x750 ft), similar to RAF Manston and RAF Carnaby, underneath the current one. 4200 damaged aircraft recovered here during the war. There is much more to this and its sister base, RAF Bentwaters, but I don’t want to hijack this thread further.
A couple of more photos.
Dad’s wing commander was Robin Olds. I find that the 81st TFW Voodoos were some of the best looking of the CW era.
I’ve posted it before, but dad with his F-101C.
