RAF Bovingdon

This Meteor NF12 is understood to be from 228 OCU. This OCU spent time at Colerne, North Luffenham and Leeming but the tower isn’t right for any of those three airfields. Thanks to Bob Truman from the Control Towers site we now know its Bovingdon.

  1. Bovingdon was used for the filming of “the war lover” starring Steve McQueen. It was also used for 633 Squadron and Mosquito squadron. Personally I think the acting in 633 Squadron and Mosquito squadron is more wooden than the aircraft!
