I had no idea the place was so complete still. It must be preserved and continue as an active airfield.I will state an interest here as it is where I obtained my Air Cadet gliding wings in 1976. Loved the place. At the time it was also home to the now defunct "Airbourne Armour". Not exactly sure what the official title was but they operated Scorpions and wore Royal Tank Rgt cap badges on a red beret. I will never forget the sight of them all undertaking their BFT at the same time, running around the airfield. Some of the ones bringing up the rear did not exactly look like your normal Para. How us cadets laughed. Ah well, what comes around goes around!
