TM3763 : Control line flying on Sax Rec, about 1966

taken 52 years ago, near to Saxmundham, Suffolk, Great Britain

Control line flying on Sax Rec, about 1966
Control line flying on Sax Rec, about 1966
It is about 1966 and Wayne and Derek are flying control line combat on the Saxmundham Recreation ground, now known as Memorial Field. Only one of the two planes is visible in this shot, and that does not have the streamer that it should be towing. The water tower features in countless Geograph photos, but I remember it as an obstruction to our (supposedly!) radio controlled aircraft.

In more modern photos you will see a scout hut in the corner of the field nearest the tower.
