XM107 at Riyan

ABOVE: 84 Sqn’s XM107 at Riyan.

“I served at RAF Riyan in 1960 and occasionally we had a delivery of supplies or equipment by Beverley. Most of our visitors were from 84 Sqn at Khormaksar. Other than several trips as a passenger and refuelling several at Riyan, I had very little involvement with Beverleys during my service. However, I did take a few photos, these taken at Riyan in 1960.”
