The first F-111s arrived at Upper Heyford in September 1970, replacing the 20th Tactical Fighter Wing’s F-100 Super Sabres. This general view of Upper Heyford shows what it was like during its days as host to the 77th, 79th and 55th Tactical Fighter Squadrons. Heyford’s F-111s flew constantly round the UK at low level in all weathers, and participated in the bombing of Lybia in 1986 and Iraq in 1992. The base closed in 1993. The historic RAF hangars that date from the 1920s can clearly be seen.
