    Report - RAF Spadeadam Mock Airfield, Northumberland - September 2020

    Plenty of reports on this but I never tire of seeing them so here’s mine. Used as a mock airfield for nearby RAF Spadeadam, this place was an absolute bastard to get to and possibly the only time you’re guaranteed to get a girl wet by showing her abandoned cold war airplanes. So much of a...

    General - RAF Sleap - Turret Trainer Building

    Sleap airfield was in use by the RAF from 1943 until 1964 and is now the base of the Shropshire Aero Club - although helicopters from nearby RAF Shawbury still visit. During WW2 the base was used for training by bomber command, and later for training Horsa glider crews. The site is busy with...

    Report - Brabazon Hangar, Filton Airfield, Bristol - June 2017

    Brabazon Hangar, Filton Airfield, South Gloucestershire Some minimal history - there is a hell of a lot of history surrounding Filton Airfield as a whole so I would certainly recommend reading up on it if Aviation history tickles you. Filton Airfield, otherwise known as Filton Airport...

    General - Long Marston Airfield 27/11/19

    27th November 2019 I went with my brother and a friend to Long Marston Airfield near Stratford Upon Avon, a RAF base that was in use between 1941 and 1954. A great explore since it has been my first one in a while. Easy to get in to at the entrance there was a metal fence we walked around then a...

    Report - Long Marston Airfield August 2018

    I realise that this has been covered on the forums before, but thought I'd post recent pics. I had to head over Stratford way to get some art framed and thought I'd pay the Airfield a visit. As you can see from these photographs the vegetation has really taken a hold of the Shackleton now, and...

    Report - A Military Airfield, Germany

    My first real Urban Exploration was done on that airfield. This is where it all began for me and it wasn't even that long ago! The airfield opened in 1936, initially for the usage for civilian air traffic such as sport flying (if that's a word). Not only that but the area was also used for...
