    Default Shoreham

    Suprised that there isn't a thread on this historic airport, Britains first licenced aerodrome.

    Photo taken in 1994

    Can anyone help me by posting some clear, ideally aerial, photos of Shoreham in the first half of the 1970s. From correspondence with a chum in the UK, I have realised just how unreliable has become my memory of the layout of the site on the south side, to the east of the terminal building, at that time. My thanks in anticipation!

    Was just curious.. does anyone have any old photos or layouts of Shoreham during the war they would be willing to share? I have been searching on the net and haven't really come across much about the airport during this period. Cheers!
