    Surviving wartime/post war aircraft connected with Greenham Common

    Hi

    Just wondering does anybody know please of a list of any surviving wartime/post war aircraft that may survive that have connections with Greenham Common when in military use 1940's, 1950's, 1960's.

    I understand several C-47's that did but exactly how many are there also any other types that anybody knows of?.

    Any help appreciated.
