A great aerial view of the Squadron areas with Connington Lane running from right to left. The 751st area where I lived is shown at the lower right. (I can even see hut 24 where I lived). The top right is the 749 Squadron area and in the center is the enlisted men's and officer's mess.

The mess facilities are in the center with the base hospital in the foreground. The Castle and Chapel can be plainly seen in this view.
