SUMMARY

Mike Dobson has recently produced a book with the somewhat macabre title “RAE Bedford RIP”.

A sixth book in a series which began with the publication of “Wings Over Thurleigh” twenty years ago, it brings to a conclusion a reasonably comprehensive historical account of the Establishment and its achievements.

The book looks at the state of both the wind tunnel and airfield sites as they exist today and in particular, highlights the dereliction internally and externally of many of the once proud buildings which has been brought about by the forces of nature, fire and human neglect.

Primarily an album of colour photographs with limited narration to help it along, it runs to 85 pages in the smaller 160 x 230 mm format.

ISBN 978-9541594-7-0
