RAF Coningsby Bomb Dump, Lincolnshire


When the Tornado F3 went out of service, the RAF had planned to shut the bomb dump temporarily until the Typhoon came into service - and then it would be re-opened. In that interim period metal thieves caused so much damage from the removal of copper from the lightning protection system (LPS), that it was more cost effective for the RAF to build a brand new facility rather than repair the old.
