  1. Acksherley, that photo reminds me of the picture on the box of my Airfiix control tower kit of the 1960s; VCR (which always varied from airfield to airfield) is very similar to the Airfix one.


  2. I drove past that tower many times from about 1966 to 1986 when attending drag race meetings a Podington.
    In about 1980, a fellow Farnborough NATS controller started racing a drag bike there and I became his crewman then when he was posted to Heathrow, I bought a 250cc Honda powered kart and raced that myself.
