Wow Mel, that was quick.
After I posted it I checked the list of previous fields. Found it had been done last September, so as quick as I could, got another pic (very, very hard one no one would ever guess) ready only to find you'd already got it.
All yours!

Next Challenge

Thanks Speedpig, the reason I was able to come back so quickly was I lived in that "neck of the woods" for several years. I am sure this will not last long.

Well thats now a full house for 15 Sqn home stations. I believe that the 'XV' was applied after moving to Abingdon, so that seems the likely favourite. If not it could be anywhere in the UK, for it would be a detachment or airshow flypast.

How about Duxford? The number of hangars fits as does that angled taxiway at the left hand end.
