An example of a short airfield history


The main articles cover a variety of subjects but concentrate mainly of the history, architecture and development of individual airfields. As may be expected, many of these are from the Second World War period. However, other related sites are also featured in main articles such as aircraft manufacturers facilities, civil and military airfields from all decades. The main articles are frequently accompanied by photographs (most previously unpublished) and plans. Among the main airfield articles in the past years were:

A History of Wymeswold and Castle Donnington Airfields

A History of RAF Turnhouse and Edinburgh Airport

Royal Air Force High Ercall

A History of RAF Lakenheath

Aspects of Bomber Command's WW2 Emergency Runways (Woodbridge, Carnaby and Manston)

For a more extensive list of main airfield histories since 1992 with date and authors, click on Airfield History Index (to be updated shortly). Other main articles main have included a series describing hangar types to be seen on UK airfields.  Each issue of Airfield Review also has many minor articles full of informative data.  Two major series in 2002 and 2014covered Satellite Landing Grounds (SLGs) and Fleet Air Arm bases (1939 to date) and proved very popular with members.  If you have material suitable for publication contact the Secretary with details.

In addition to the main articles are the regular features,  Round-Up is a compilation of news and current status items on airfields and other related sites. These columns also include aeronautical memorials, another subject avidly followed by many members of the Group. Book reviews relating to airfield publications are another regular feature of the journal, frequently highlighting "amateur" publications rarely notified elsewhere..
