RAF AQABA, JORDAN, 1950s

Tom Singfield found this wonderful photo and subsequently found a description on the web.

“The complete establishment of RAF Aqaba, Jordan. The Pig (Viking) fuselage is the combined ATC and SHQ . The Dak fuselage is the officers and sergeants mess. The tent behind for the erks. Tom thinks that both aircraft had come to grief there over the years and were put to good use, better than a tent. Note the reed roof. This was Aqaba in 1952, with an oiled (bitumen?) sand strip quite close to the beach cum fishing village.”
