I cycled four miles on a gloomy afternoon to photograph the arrival of the first B-52s to detach to Fairford since the early sixties, for a Busy Brewer exercise following the recent closure of the BAC Concorde flight test facility. Busy Brewers would be an annual event at Fairford for several years. Later that year the USAF 7020th Air Base Group established itself at Fairford and played host to successive 90-day KC-135 tanker detachments. (Serial is difficult to read & may be wrong)(Practika L)
