    Report - RAF Weston Zoyland, Bridgwater, Dec 22

    This is down the road from me, yet I've never really bothered doing a proper explore until now... was a snowy day again, much like my explore of RAF Culmhead (Here), had a soundtrack of some cars cocking about on the snow for the entire visit. It is mostly open to the public, except for the...

    Report - RNAS Stretton (HMS Blackcap) - Warrington - August 23

    HMS Blackcap was originally built for the RAF during WW2 as a night fighter station to protect Liverpool but due to changes in the Luftwaffe tactics it was not required and was handed over to the Navy in 1942. Forty-one Fleet Air Arm Squadrons were based there for varying periods, some aircraft...

    Report - RAF Culmhead/RAF Upottery, Blackdown Hills, Dec 22

    I've been trying to track down all the disused RAF airfields that are relatively close to me, and these two are very close together, so going to cover them in one report. This is mainly because there's very little at Upottery except for the runway and control tower, but it's still interesting...

    Report - RAF Davidstow Moor, Camelford, July 22

    Not really sure if this qualifies as Urbex or not, as you can just drive onto the runways... Probably private, but fair game with no signs or fences 🤷🏻‍♂️ Can't beat an old RAF airfield, and this one hasn't been posted much or recently. It was my first proper outing with the drone too, so...

    Report - RAF Driffield (with RAF West Raynham Comparisons) - March 2022

    THE HISTORY This airfield is no stranger to explorers, nor has it had a quiet past, and as such has had its history thoroughly covered online. However, I will recover it below. Also, to make up for this place having been done to death I've added a few side-by-side comparisons with another very...

    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 - RAF Brunton Northumberland : 2018

    When searching for places to explore, I stumbled across this rather interesting abandoned site; An abandoned Northumbrian airfield about 10 miles north from Alnwick. It was opened in 1942 for the purpose of pilot training in Northumberland and contains 3 runways and many buildings and bunkers...

The result being Woodford Aerodrome in Stockport, the site opened with 2 dutch barn style hangars with the site growing to be much larger...

    Report - Plane Graveyard, Lasham May 2018

    Plane Graveyard 2018 (Nigerian Government Plane) Our Visit: Living pretty close to this airfield we decided to head over and take a look at some abandoned aircraft. The airfield is still used so we didn't know how easy it would be to gain access or even get close. After finding our route in we...

    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...
