the army and USAF both use it for training fairly regularly. I was close by last year doing some bird watching and an Osprey (the V.22 not the sea eagle) flew past us low and went in. We went over to the base and it was doing practice landings and discharging troops then loading up. The Wattisham apaches sometimes use it as well. There's nothing based there though nowadays but there is some sort of army presence there I believe.

I was told that the Il.76 was in for some filming work for a new movie and was there for a couple of days from memory.

FRANCIS: Now, this is the palace in Caesar's Square. Our commando unit will approach from Fish Street, under cover of night, and make our way to the northwestern main drain. If questioned, we are sewage workers on our way to a conference. Reg, our glorious leader and founder of the P.F.J., will be coordinating consultant at the drain head, though he himself will not be taking part in any terrorist action, as he has a bad back.
BRIAN: Aren't you going to come with us? REG: Solidarity, brother. BRIAN: Oh, yes. Solidarity, Reg.
FRANCIS: Once in the sewer, timing will be of the essence. There is a Roman feast later in the evening, so we must move fast, and don't wear your best sandals. Turning left here, we enter the Caesar-Augustus memorial sewer and from there, proceed directly to the hypocaust.
