Harrier jets over San Pedro 20-30 years ago
Anyone remember these Harriers in Belize back in the day ?
Yep, were my air cover when I recced xsclapl/yucitan , being based in coral lodge,
Yes and that's a great shot. loved those daze when the RPL showed up at the public dock. Lots of laughter.
Us old sea dogs from the RPL's always valued the hospitality of the island and still fond memories of some great weekends in San Pedro. I used to stay with Taff and Rose , wonderful hospitality ....happy days indeed
Grant Crimmins Not sure when the photo was taken, it is not mine, but must be a bit over 20 years ago now.....
I demobbed (3 queens) 78 so might be 30 years
I do I do!!! I was managing The Don Quixote Hotel in Consejo Shores by Corozal Town. I had lots of the British Forces visiting the hotel and they used to do an early morning "FLYBY" lol almost every day and scare everyone.
And the puma helicopter (RAF) ferrying the lads over and back to the mainland for island surviver training.
I was just back five years ago and stayed at Martha's - sadly both hancocks, Peter & Peggy had passed on. Good timed had by all.
Got "strafed" by a couple while on a catamaran trip to Caye Caulker. Seemed like we could have touched them they were so low.
