    I seem to recall during Firepower the making of ALIENS that Peter Lamont was at RAF Marham Norfolk sourcing parts from decommissioned Vulcan aircraft for the fictional UD-4 "Cheyenne" Dropship around 1984-1985.

    I lived on the very same base during that time when young. So chances are we might have passed at the Naafi or been within a mile when he was there.

    Didn't know this at the time of course.
