Was that a 50/40 or 30 points attempt? Not right but I'll give a bit of assistance again at the 30 points level with this following that attempt.

Still 30 points on offer with this clarifiaction following Bobins attempt
Spoiler: show
Not Lympne but an airfield which suffered a similar fate.
And if you want another picture down to 20 points with this
picture 3

No I'll leave you at 40 for that extra snippet.

When I first saw the pic I thought it was Louis Mountbatten and Sevvy Ballesteros would you believe!! What's worse is I havn't got any other names yet!! I do wonder if it is at Andrews Airforce Base?
I'm quite happy to give clues to avoid any unneccesary head scratching. Have a scan down whats already been given and I'll lob up some more.

Youve gone from Kent to Norfolk. Kent is too far South and Norfolk too far North

Heres another clue at the 20 point level
Spoiler: show
The key to the question is not knowing Airfields but knowing where all three pictures originate, and finding out the airfield from that.

If you see the answer to bobins last attempt confirmation that the airport location is in Western Europe South of Norfolk and North of Kent!

My lastest clue on the 20 point level will save some headscratching Mick.

..and that is the Coup de Grace

Good effort Bobins but Mick claims....20?. Find the film/look it up in IMDB/Find Locations.

One of the actors in my picture also did a spell at the throttle of the cannonball express.
