This photo of a 98 Squadron Hawker Hunter from RAF Jever was taken by The Late Brian Sharman in 1955 and published in Aeroplane magazine in October 2008. An eagle-eyed former pupil spotted that it was actually flying over our old school, of which the boarding houses on Fliegerdeich can be seen immediately behind the fin.

By chance came upon photograph by my late husband, Brian Sharman, and would be delighted to hear from anyone who knew him.

    May we add you to our ‘found’ list, or are you already on it Colin?

Hunter caption is wrong. Only the very western end of Main site in the phhoto, and certainly not the Fliegerdeich.The view is to the north over Zwischenhafen, west of Main Site.

G’day Terry and nice to see you on the blog! My eyesight is not great to judge this right now, but I will pass your message on to the author of the piece in NL 73 (Spring 2018) and see what transpires.

No problem Paul. My own flying career and a background in aerial photography makes it stand ou easily to me. I have the photo boundary plotted on Google earth if it helps. Regards from Oz.
