Hi all,

I've been doing quite a bit of research lately, mainly into RAF Handforth (61 Mu). As a sideline, I used a nice little website called E-mapping Twin maps
() to stitch together this aerial view of RAF Wilmslow.

RAF Wilmslow, No 4 Recruit Training Centre. Opened approximately 1939 and closed completely in 1962 (ish)

Aerial map of the site, taken in the early 1970's, with modern day aerial view to show the area today.

James,

The Cheshire site is brilliant, especially as it reaches into Flintshire and Wrexham. I thought they had 1940s aerials on there originally but maybe I was wrong.
