RAF WADDINGTON

RAF Waddington is the RAF's ISTAR (Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition & Reconnaissance) centre, supporting British and NATO operations.  It has been in almost continuous use since 1916.  There is a viewing area with a car park and mobile café opposite the airfield on the south-bound side of the A15.  Opposite is parked a Vulcan bomber.  There are information boards explaining the history and some of the aircraft you might see flying, but it’s obviously a matter of pot luck whether you spot anything at all.  A good camera is essential and a set of stepladders might be useful.
