Is this Whelpley Hill? In the late 1950s a sort of shanty town of huts and caravans was on the dispersals there. I remember years ago walking from there with my Dad in the rain down the taxy track to the perimeter by the threshold of 09 and watching a C54 land and trundle past us as we waved and got a wave back. Happy Days! Be interesting if you can find out if the airfield was ever bombed. I know a Doodlebug took out a house in the village in 1944.
The definition on these aerial views is not as sharp as the originals as I have to re-scan them to load them onto PPRuNe.
