It is still MOD Property but it seems to be abandoned every now n again unless it is borrowed by the US. You may see civillian security cars round the base but there is deffo somthin going on in there!

Regarding Machrihanish, it doesn't appear on the RAF squadrons list, however, with the second longest runway in the UK surely it operates some aircraft (even the airfields which operate a few Pumas are mentioned on the RAF homepage).
I wouldn't imagine there many other bases like this in the UK, does anyone know of any? or know why this base isn't acknowledged by the RAF?
