1960s Veterans of RAF Brize Norton reunite

Air Traffic Controllers who served at RAF Brize Norton in the late 1960’s reunited for the first time in October 2011, thanks to 192.com, which helped organisers track missing wing-men.

Colin Blakelock, ex-Assistant Air Traffic Control officer at RAF Brize Norton, organised the reunion with ex-colleagues Vic Nugent and Les Deighton after Mr Nugent found him on Facebook.

“192.com has greatly assisted in finding other old colleagues. I put my old RAF mate’s name into 192.com and where I thought he lived, and wham bam his contact details came up, it was an instant find.”

Mr Blakelock, now living in Canada added:  

“Many of us are now grandparents. This should be a fantastic reunion. A few of us have stayed in touch but the great majority have not seen one another since those days.”

Dominic Blackburn, Product Director of 192.com said: “192.com reunites thousands of families and friends a year and we’re also proud of our track record of reuniting servicemen.”
