Left gob­s­macked about the loss of such a fine air­craft

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Telegraph -

WITH ref­er­ence to the let­ter in The Evening

Tele­graph dated De­cem­ber 15 which was about the Har­rier air­craft.

I worked for the Min­istry of De­fence at RAF Wit­ter­ing for 11 years, from 2000 un­til I re­tired at 65 years of age in Septem­ber 2011.

I was 25 when the Har­rier first came into ser­vice at RAF Wit­ter­ing. I was gob­s­macked when it was with­drawn from ser­vice.

As for ac­ci­dents trav­el­ling to and from RAF Wit­ter­ing and Peter­bor­ough, I only had one and that was at the old, de­funct Car­pen­ter’s Lodge round­about. IAN MC­DOW­ELL Sad­dle Court,

Pas­ton, Peter­bor­ough
