Short Belfast golden oldie

Post by GerritsFinest »

Just ready the nice article on msg board: http://forum.scramble.nl/viewtopic.php?p=857409#p857409 about the Belfast in Cairns... interesting golden oldie and not much seen on NL military bases. I only got one, taken at RAF Germany July 5 1970 and wearing its name SAMSON and also RAF Air Support Command on the nose, just 47 years ago...

Anyone with more shots on the Belfast??

Not as old as yours Gerrit and certainly no military anymore.

They only built 10 of them, so the chances of seeing one were slim outside the UK.
I never saw a military one, but like the above post shows... they were regulars at Schiphol.

So here's a slidescan of a shot I took on the 19th of october 1997:
