This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.gearthhacks.com/dlfile25716/Only-UK-Lightning-Gate-Guard.htm>Only UK Lightning Gate Guard</a></b><br><br>As RAF Coltishall has lost its Lightning, this leaves RAF Bentley-Priory as the only UK RAF station with a Lightning gate guard - how has it come to this? Unfortunately XM173 is hidden away out of sight from the public which is a crying shame with a paint scheme like this!<br />

Active RAF stations at Leuchars and Boscombe Down have Lightning guards, as do former RAF stations Booker, Farnborough, Salmesbury and Warton. There's even one guarding a used-car lot!!:yep:

Mhmm..my source sucked...I'll toss that one out. =)

I was wondering about it..it seemed slightly odd to be the only one. Thanks for pointing that out.
