    Kiesby Wood/RAF Folkingham is a former World War II Royal Air Force flying station in Lincolnshire. Opened in 1940, it was used by both the Royal Air Force and United States Army Air Force. During the war it was used primarily as a troop carrier airfield for airborne units and as a subsidiary training depot of the newly formed Royal Air Force Regiment.
    During the late 1950s and early 1960s, the RAF Bomber Command used Folkingham as a PGM-17 Thor Intermediate Range Ballistic Missile (IRBM) base.

    "Today the remains of the airfield are located on private property being used as agricultural fields, with the main north-south runway acting as hardstanding for hundreds of scrapped vehicles."

    The place is huge and full of amazing vehicles, same dating from 1930's to present day. I was only there with a friend for a few hours and could easily spend a whole day capturing images at this place.

    Here's a few photos......
