American Airbases

A Memory of Alconbury

I used to live in Huntington, on the Oxmoor estate. We used to go to the dances held at the air base - they was really great. The American airman was based there before going to Vietnam, they done low flying over the estate and when they broke the sound barrier our windows shook. There was also testing the rockets - what a noise! Still, got used to it so never bothered us. I moved back to London but I had four good years in Huntington. Made some real good friends; Vera Padian, Lilly and Paddy, Ann and Ken if any of you remember me, I lived in No 61 Thongley. Love to hear from you
