Photo Comment

Photographed during its final year at Valkenburg. This wonderful Neptune was placed on display here as a gate guard in April 1981, but 25 years later, on 23 May 2006 following the unfortunate closure of Valkenburg air base, it was moved to De Kooy near Den Helder for continued preservation.
