Introduction.

As someone who has an interest in aviation history, I find myself fortunate to be living close to several World War 2 airfields. As most of them are now closed with many buildings demolished and some with runways removed, I have decided to make a pictoral record of what they look like at the turn of the 20th century before they decay any further.

In this website you will find mostly images; images of hangars, watch towers, technical site buildings, dispersal sites, 'interesting' strips of concrete, airmans married quarters, known favourite pubs, etc, and anything else that took my fancy.

Be sure to bookmark this site as I will be updating it on a regular basis, and look for links to other sites that may be of interest. Select any of the airfields listed to the left and enjoy what views I have of them so far.

Optimised for viewing at 1024 x 768

Didn't get round to reformatting the website so am sticking with it as it is for the time being.

Found a load more of the files that went missing so have uploaded most. Still working through various image faults, but most open ok.

BICESTER page - many thumbnails now working.

Added new page - SLADE FARM

As always - 'Work in progress'. Please let me know if there are any glaring errors or faults

If you were stationed at any of the airfields,and would like to see specific views not already included, then please contact me and I'll be happy to try and oblige.

Perhaps it may be a building of personal interest (eg place of work, Married Quarters, Mess etc). Let me know and I'll try and include a photo on the website.
