The original building at RAF Waddington has been converted for battle fire practise where a screen shows troops moving through woodlands and as you lay at the other end of the building with your 'rifle' you shoot as you idenify friend from foe .
I receive the following correspondance from a Chap in 1989 ...
" ..it was built of brickwork with a concrete floor and roof, the parapet wall round the roof has a concrete capping on the top of it. the windows were the steel 'Crittall' type. The walls were 16" thick. the duct in the floor for the wiring was covered with Teak boarding. I do not know if this was a standard Link Trainer building or a one-off, it was built late 1939, i worked on it as an apprentice Carpenter and joiner at the time"
This example is at the aerodrome at Hawkinge and now forms a useful part of the Kent Battle of Britian Museum. You will also note that it is for a SINGLE Link trainer unit.
This example of the floor of a Link Trainer building (in this case Upwood, 2008 ) illustrates what is noted in Able Mable's post (and somewhere previously on the thread). Sorry about the quality!
And this is what went on inside.....
interesting bit from Vintage Wings
Raf Binbrooks Link Trainer building.
I also have one of the original brass door key id discs which has stamped on it L.T 2 which came from this building.
I see the parquet has gone.
Here are two images C/0 historic photographs/historischer fotografien would they have been in the above building?
