A great big hello to one and all. Never new about this forum till Mark Barns told me about it. My name is tony, I live just on the out skirts of the Salisbury Plain training area (SPTA). My main intrests are modern military photography, I am currently running a website called Plain Military but things have been a bit slow due to the fact that most of the regiments around me are on active duties somewhere in the world. Apart from my photography I also play a part at the Boscombe Down Aviation Collection (BDAC). We have a whole load of airframes currently under restoration and a handfull of vehicles that have been handed over to myself and some friends to restore. We have got ourself a massive barn which we have just finished converting into a workshop. The vehicles we have include
Thorny croft MK9 crash tender
Rangerover 6X6 TACR2 RIV
Land rover SER3 109 HSV (helicopter support vehicle)
Bomb loader with two bomb trolleys
assorted bombs for the trolleys 1 PAVEWAY, 1- 500pd and 1 - 1000pd Iron bomb
Bedford MK Airfield re fueler
two Ferret scout cars.
All the vehicles have got a long history with Boscombe down one way or another. The sad thing about the vehicle is that they are going to need quite alot of work to bring them back to life. I do have some pictures of them on the Plain Military website so please feel free to have a look. Our main goal is to get all of these vehicles up and running for some shows but we are going to need some help so would it be OK to ask you chaps if we get stuck with something.
Well thats about it sorry for the life history but you did ask. Thankyou for reading this new post and hope to hear from you all soon.
