They've managed to film the aftermath of some real nasty crashes in there. Grim but fascinating viewing.

Hi, I posted a link to this web page a few weeks ago, there are some excellent archieve films here covering several USAF bases both bomber and fighter, there was an excellent one on Honnigton as a crash repair depot, so many aircraft types including visiting RAF types eg Typhoon :-) well worth checking this site out.

Really enjoyed watching this on a rather boring Sunday's afternoon. Excellent quality footage.
