Airfields 11.

X1DL Deanland by Trevor Clark: A small private airfield situated beneath the beautiful South Downs in East Sussex near the town of Lewes. Built (as a temporary fighter  airfield) in 1944 for Spitfire squadrons of the Polish Air Force to  support D-Day operations and later to counter the V-1 threat until  closing in 1945. It reopened as a much smaller privately owned airfield in 1963.

Nowadays Deanland is the home to several small GA aircraft, micro-lights; radio- controlled model aircraft flying and is  now also a forward operating/refueling base for the Sussex Police helicopter.

X3RH Rougham by Trevor Clark, (near the town of Bury St.Edmunds in Suffolk in the UK) was originally built for the USAAF during WW2. Today, part of the old airfield has  been adapted for private light aircraft operations, however it is  somewhat basic! The old military control tower and some old buildings  have been preserved and operate as a museum, dedicated to those who  lost their lives flying from the base. It is well known for hosting a  popular air show, every summer.

X2TI Royal Air Force Thorney Island by Trevor Clark This was an important operational station from 1938 until 1974. It is  located on the south coast of the United Kingdom between the cities of  Chichester and Portsmouth. Because of the picturesque coastal setting  and good transport links, it was always a popular posting for RAF  servicemen and women. Since 1982 it has been known as Baker Barracks  and is currently home to a Royal Artillery unit  of the British Army.

X4OX Oxenhope International, so named because a chap from France using 25 year old charts landed  here by mistake and or with a shortage of fuel back in the 1970’s. Oxenhope is across the valley from Leeds/Bradford or RAF Yeadon as it was on his chart. If you  like your airfields with short runways and stone boundary walls then  test your skill here. Unless you have an ultralight you will not leave  here in one piece without flaps.

Oxenhope. Hang on to your hats folks!

EGYK Wolds Gliding Club, Pocklington by Stewart Kingswood
The Wolds Gliding Club is based at the old wartime airforce base at  Pocklington along side the A1079 Hull to York road Adjacent to the  airfield is the Industrial Estate. I have tried to create the airfield as best as I can to real scenery, however I am not the worlds best building maker so I  have used stock items from various libraries  available on Avsim and Flightsim.com.
The scenery also includes the industrial estate and individually placed trees.

X4SD Swinderby by Ted Harrison
Opened in August 1940, it was home to Polish and Australian squadrons and 50  Squadron RAF and was part of 5 Group involved in the heavy bomber raids. Later in the war was home to Heavy Conversion Units. From the  early 1960s RAF Swinderby was the Airmen's School of Recruit Training  but was closed in 1993. Three years later the site was disposed of and  is now used for industrial units, agriculture and hosts shows and  antiques fairs. I hope this virtual revival will give it back some well earned dignity!

No's 5 and 11 Squadron, depicted here with the bare metal F6 Lightning variant, were the last two RAF squadrons to employ  the Lightning when the station closed and subsequently sold off for  development in 1988.
Before it was completely decommissioned, Binbrook was one of the bases used for the filming of the movie "Memphis Belle"
