North Weald Gallery

 

 

All of the pictures in this gallery were taken at North Weald airfield in Essex.  The airfield dates back to 1916, during the first world war, and went on to become a famous fighter station during the second.  RAF operations from North Weald ended in 1958 and it officially closed in 1964.  It was used again in 1968 for some of the scenes in the film "The Battle of Britain" so for a brief period it relived its former glory.  In 2006 the airfield celebrated its 90th anniversary.  Now it is the home for several aircraft collections and various fly-ins take place throughout the year.

The Squadron provides the club facilities which are housed in original WW II buildings complete with furnishings of the period - walking into the Squadron is like going back in time.

When sitting outside the Squadron on a fine sunny day - look up into the sky and close your eyes: it doesn't take much imagination to hear the sound of the Merlins and the chatter of the pilots as they talk about their exploits back in the summer of 1940.
