Avolon is no longer logging in but if anyone else is interested there is a you tube video of the arrival of Bulganin and Khushchev at Elmdon in 1956.
My dad was one of the police motorcycle outriders in the parade.

Don't remember a BOAC Comet at Elmdon, the first Comet to visit was from RAF Air Support Command.
