The other van had been asked by, what appeared to be the police, as to what we were doing stopping on the main road viewing the base. After a polite chat we moved on and decided on no photographs here. Having said that, we were also going to view from another area which had height over the base, but that meant viewing the aircraft from distance. However I took a few shots of camels and a local who was interested in what we were doing as we viewed from a high vantage point.
At the moment we still need to confirm all the B707’s which we saw and we may have a few C/n issues with the Lockheed C-130 Hercules.
Assumptions are from previous notes and reports dated April 2018. Those it relates to are the ones which are in brackets.
However based upon the report in WMOOS 2018/19, it is possible that both B707’s (246 / 248) were still present in May 2019. This has not been confirmed.
