Coningsby has an interesting history, the airfield was home to the battle of Britain memorial flight & the 619 dambusters squadron no less.
The main site is still live & home to typhoon jets which were operational during our visit & its indescribable how loud these were closely overhead.

Anyway the weapons store are very much abandoned & I cant find much history on this, it was essentially a "off site" store for ammunition & bombs to help protect personnel on the base.

Know its not new but did this one with my lad & thoroughly enjoyed it so thought I would share.
Oh its a bit pic heavy again sorry!

That’s really nice mate, I really enjoyed my visit here years back despite missing half of the place, most of it was locked up tight. Really nice mix of pics there.

It is indeed, there was a Spitfire flying around overhead when I was there a year or so ago which is one of my favourite exploring memories of all time.
