Question Luftwaffe reconnaissance photos

I am reading a very good book and it contains luftwaffe reconaissance photos of various airfields at the time of the Second World War.

What I can't find is a detailed photo of Kenley, tried google, alta vista and BBC search to no avail. Does anyone know an on-line (or otherwise) resource where I might find detailed photos of Kenley.

It doesn't have to be Luftwaffe, I suppose the RAF would have taken some.

Lightbulb Kenley

I found a modern aerial picture of Kenley AirfieldModern Kenley

and also a site where Luftwaffe reconnaissance photos are for sale Lufwaffe Aerial Reconnaissance Photos

Also whilst browsing, I found this site that may be useful to those who take an interest in the Battle of Britain Fighter Command HQ Uxbridge

Nothing other than that really, perhaps someone else will have better luck helping you with your quest.

There is a book called 'Adolf Hitlers Holiday Snaps' which may contain WW2 aerial photos of Kenley - I'll look tonight.

Or the 'After the Battle' book about the Battle of Britain has aerial photos of most if not all of the airfields involved - again, I'll try & check tonight.

Ta very much

Thanks for that, Kermit and Who has control.

I have checked the website and there don't seem to be any for Kenley though I will order one of the Croydon ones. Incidentally, I wonder what the Luftwaffe's interest in some of these places was. For instance there are photos of Limpsfield...one wonders why they needed those unless there was a cricket match on at the time!!!!
