Chelveston

AviationPosted by Peter Smith Wed, July 11, 2018 00:35:54

Chelveston airfield was opened in 1941 and primarily served the USAAF. The main unit was the 305th Bombardment Group Heavy, one of the most decorated units in Europe. Today it is hard to find evidence of the airfield but there is an impressive memorial in the village nearby which I went to look at a couple of days ago.

Seems to have vanished doesn't it Mark. I didn't think it was worth spending much time hunting for the field especially as a camp site and a cold beer were calling!

Wow. You can't even tell from Google maps where the old runways were. There is a renewable energy park shown and the landscape is littered with solar panels and wind towers
