A couple of scans of two faded prints from Alan ‘Nobby’ Noble. Unfortunately he could not lay his hands on the negatives, which would have given a better quality image, still worth a look though.
Does anybody know what happened to the Harvards or the A26's?

Apparently the Invaders were scrapped in the early 80s after land developers took over the airfield. One would imagine the same fate for the Harvards. There is one A-26 preserved in Riyadh, and they also have a Harvard.

A-26 Here (in 1993).

P.S.

I did take the liberty of trying to play a little with the colors of your images!
