I am lucky enough to live close enough to both RAF Lossiemouth and RAF Leuchars that I can drive to them for a day trip. The last time I went to Lossiemouth my cousin and her husband were there, and he is a keen amateur photographer with a 'real' camera, and he managed to get some good shots. I've put up my favourites here for your enjoyment. They might even be useful to some of you for modelling projects, which would be nice. It really is amazing how close the Royal Air Force let you get to their airfields, so without further ado:

It was 1972 when it was handed back to the RAF, so 39 years according to my maths.

Superb photos, were most of them taken at the opposite end of the runway from the coast end?

Same place as me then! I used to stay in Finavon, which is around 50 miles down the road (by Forfar) which meant it was handier to get to Leuchars, but two years ago moved up to Aberdeen.
