SUMMARY

A pictorial record of the Airfield and its aircraft, 1940 – 2020

This book is essentially a catalogue of photographs of the airfield and the many aircraft, both resident and visiting,which used it over the period from its handing over to the Royal Air Force in 1940 to the present day when it remains in operation as a Civil Aviation Authority licenced airfield. The book runs to 80 pages in C5 size [16.2cm x 22.9cm] and cites some 85 different aircraft types.Photographs are mainly from the archive of the Bedford Aeronautical Heritage Group whose agreement to their use is gratefully acknowledged. Much of the descriptive narrative is presented in the form of captions to the photographs with limited supporting passages only where further explanation seemed necessary.

72 pages and with 45 illustrations
