A few pictures from my local airfield, the former RAF Lashenden (A prototype ALG in 1943).
It was briefly home to 421 and 403 Squadrons of the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) flying the Spitfire IX before, on 17 April 1944 the 354th Fighter Group arrived from RAF Boxted.
Wikipeadia has a pretty good entry on its history:
It is now one of the busiest GA airfields in the south of England, offering pleasure flights, skydiving, warbird experiences (AT-6) and the Tiger Club (www.tigerclub.co.uk) along with a fantastic little museum of many interesting artifacts, wrecks and relics of downed aircraft and such from the WW2 period.
Oh and lovely Cafe!
I grew up with this place on my doorstep, and still love going there to chill out and imagine what it was like nearly 70 years ago...
