    This is a photocopy of photocopy & was rescued from a waste bin at CAA Head Office Gatwick along with various other airfield plans (they were part of a handbook of military airfields), being junked.

    That is from a Fleet Air Arm Handbook and also included in AIR 10/4039 (one of the appendices). It must have been an old ducument as I think that was from 1944!
    Although it might have survived without update for a few years.

    This is our history these Civil Servants are chucking - they should consult us first, we do pay their wages

    John, that is excellent, it shows that the NE/SW runway crossed the B3192.

    Would you mind if I incorporated that in my webpage on Haldon - and do you have a larger scan you could eMail - with the letter Key at the bottom of the page complete?
