I also forgot to put Debach on the Suffolk Airfield list - unlikely but just possible.

RAF Lindholme were about the last station operating the Lincoln in the late 50's early 60's.

As to the Lincoln A/C in the RE34_ range...

We can ignore...

RE342 - written off at Upwood 1951

RE344 - written off at Binbrook 1950

RE343 + RE349 - to Argentina as B-001 + B- 002 circa 1948

 

Which just leaves the possibility of the A/C in the background being...

RE340,RE341,RE345,RE346,RE347,RE348.

I have not as yet found an online source for individual A/C histories in the 'RE' range.

Thanks bazv.

Just to recapitulate what I said in my (unnumbered) post above (25 November) I can say that RE347 was based at Upwood in May 1955. I flew in it and I think it was 7 Squadron (but I'm not sure of the last point).

PS: I see that if you are composing a post and leave it to check a post on a previous page, you lose it.

I don't have it, but might the Air-Britain book 'Royal Air Force Aircraft PA100 to RZ999' shed light on the careers of RE340/1/5/6/7/8? If so, no doubt someone on this forum will have a copy.
