This was the view from the Fosseway path, a public right-of-way across RAF Kemble when it hosted No. 5 Maintenance Unit. It shows the A-Site scrap dump with the remains of the Lightning T5 prototype that had been in the RAF Museum Reserve Collection at Colerne. (Thanks to Mike Freer for this information.) It still wears the original yellow trainer bands, obsolete by some 14 years when this picture was taken. How such an exhibit could have been dumped defies imagination.
