Secret Hidden World War II Airfield


This image of a closed military site at RAF Folkingham in Lincolnshire is home to an ageing collection of decommissioned military vehicles, farming machinery and lorries dating from the 1940s. I used a similar idea when creating the modern story in Flying Without Wings. My character Matt Buttrick lives near this secret airfield in 1985 but the setting is in Berkshire, near Aldermaston.

Why Aldermaston? And what is nearby that played such a major role in the second world war and has continued to cause a fuss ever since?

Find out in Flying Without Wings.

Here is the Daily Mail article, Published November 18, 2013, which shows the decaying war vehicles.
