Aircraft types worked on

Not exactly worked on but worked with-----------Dragonfly, Whirlwind, Wessex, Belevedere---Sea Venom, Seahawk, Sea Vixen, Scimitar, Buccaneer, Skyraider, Gannets( both versions) and Grumman Avengers !!
At RAF Binbrook, I first worked on the Avro Lincoln, similar to the Lancaster but bigger. We then went on to the Canberra Mk's B2 and B6. When 617 Squadron disbanded to go on to Vulcans as I only had a year to do I was drafted in to ASF (Air servicing flight) In this unit I had to do the odd stint on Duty Crew, stationed at the Control Tower and there came across a varied selection of visitors. Meteors, Vampires, Ansons, Oxfords and the odd Sabre. One day we even had a B29 Superfortress. The amazing thing about the American aircraft, every removable panel for equipment access was stencilled with what was in it and what to do with it!!
