  • Description

    SYNOPSIS: The United States Air Force units based at Manston, in Kent, today said thanks for the hospitality they've received during their seven years there. They did so by inviting local people to look round the base. A display of aircraft was put on for them. As well as saying thank you, the Americans were saying farewell -- the last of them will have left Manston by mid-summer.

    The next stage of the proceedings was a fly-past.

    Then a march past -- fifteen hundred airmen took part. At one time, there were many more men at the base, and they made many friends around Manston.

    But it hasn't been all smooth going for them. We heard about it from Colonel Hugh Manson.
