Memorial to LCP BF1006

Pete Harry has produced this memorial to Launch Control Post Ser No BF1006 that had lain derelict at RAF North Luffenham. He has this hanging on his office wall as a reminder that we couldn’t save them all but 1006 gave up enough parts to keep 1022 going.

The Digital Output cards 1006 held being an example as repairing the U/S card from last week would cost over £100 using original parts, but we now have a number of spares, thanks to 1006.

Pete had to re-ink the ID label for 1006 (with a proper indelible pen of course!) as the serial number and mod strikes were very faded.
