King'scliffe dispersal

Recommended Posts

Work started on an airfield at King's Cliffe in 1941. Originally known as Wansford, it was RAF Wittering's second relief landing ground. The Air Ministry renamed the airfield RAF Kingscliffe, contracting the name of the nearby village. It served both the RAF and USAAF.

Nice work Ratch,

It looks even better with the P 51's, judging by the list of units you could house all sorts of aircraft. I do like your impressive amount of push bikes.
