My love affair with exploring started with world war two history. I visited this airfield for the first time in 2013. It was one of my early explores. Was at loose end one weekend decided to give it another visit. Situated in the STANTA army training ground it still has a fair bit to see. There is the watch office and transport shed, various buildings in the woods, a rather unusual pillbox, BHQ; although it's very flooded as they are usually situated underground. Their is also many Stanton shelters dotted about. One that is hidden in the woods still has the original escape ladder and even more so the hatch, these have normally been ripped off.
RAF Bodney started of as an RAF bomber command station. But in 1943 it was handed to the Americans, known as station 121. It was home mainly home to the Blue Nosed Bastards of Bodney, a formation of P-51 Mustangs. On the 6th of June a pilot crashed into the corner of the tower in poor visibility. The pilot was killed instantly, leaving a big gaping hole in the tower.

Don't think I've seen this before at all, which is odd seeing as I've recently been looking nearby at some other abandoned places! I'll have to look into this one for when lockdown is lifted. Really nice set of pics here though, enjoyed it!

Cool little explore there. Great history behind the report. Like the stand alone chimney stack shot.
