My membership is pending:Brian Gough I served at RAF Coltishall from 1958 to 1964 and 1967 to 1970.I met my late wife Trixie who was working for the NAAFI at the time and we were married at Scottow church.We attended the closing down ceremony,a very sad day but we had some very special and happy memories of serving at the base with 23sqdn and 74sqdn Javelin and Hunter aircraft followed by the Lightnings.I now live opposite the Matlaske airfield used as a Coltishall satellite during WW2.Would be nice to hear from anyone who remembers me.

I loved Coltishall and going to school at Buxton Primary. Miss Sally was our cub mistress at Scottow; what happened to her she was a lovely lady with her dog "Therefore" Bonfire night or the open day airshow kept us interested and catching newts in the nearby river/ stream and over the fields
to the haunted house. Great days

The year threw me John. The Meteor T7 WG936 crashed on 22nd December 1952 not 53. The pilot 23 year old Sgt. John Stuart Dennison reported that the port engine had failed and the aircraft made a steep turn into the airfield with flaps down and undercarriage retracted. It flew slowly along the runway heading and then commenced a flat turn to starboard and dived into the ground. Also killed was the navigator, Fl/Sgt. Edward Shipman. (Information from Last Take-Off by Colin Cummings)

Hello, can you tell me anymore about the loss of Flt Sgt Shipman of 141 Squadron in late 1953 in a Gloster Meteor, Nf11, WG936. Also lost was Sgt Jennison. Many thanks, John Shipman

Just found this excellent website, and would like to add that I served at Coltishall during 1947, working on Mosquito's. The highlight was being part of a Guard of Honour for the visit of Lord Tedder who was Air Chief Marshall of the RAF at the time. Also remember the C.O. Richard Stanford Tuck (Famous Fighter Pilot) driving around the airfield in his MG.
