Zcott, Irishmanlost and myself explored what we presumed was an old factory - which turned out to be an old NI Electric training centre.

At the end of the complex was a 1970's build Airtraffic Control Tower

, and from the roof we spotted this littel gem

IMGP1480tn.jpg

An original Air Raid shelter - intact and almost clean

The electrics on the inside are relatively modern, but the inside is amazingly intact

A fair amoount of the original airstrip can still be found today

RAF Nutts Corner was home in 1941 to 120 Sqn Coastal Command.
They flow Liberator UBoat hunters!
