    @ Paul
    This (578 Squadron) site is brilliant. It's about time a quality web site was made for this base and distinguished squadron. Have sort of adopted the place and people as my own after 15yrs of living here and would loath to have them or the place forgotten, especially after the scares of development we've have recently!
    You've had something to do with this website, (too modest to say how much!) you should be very proud of what you, and all of you, have produced!
    Congratulations and many thanks for this website!
    ( A bit off-thread but please forgive me!)

    Everyone interested should try to get hold of a book entitled "Based At Burn Mk.II" by Hugh Cawdron (# ISBN-10: 0952531712
    # ISBN-13: 978-0952531715). A fantastic book! Well worth a read!

    Hi all,
    It looks like Burn Gliding club are now locked into a battle to try and get Burn airfield.

    http://www.yorkpress.co.uk/news/8983...n_land_battle/

    I wish them all the luck They deserve to stay as they have looked after the place for so long.
    Yorkshire Forward! More like "Yorkshire Backward".... Selby Council are not without blame on this mess either. Burn gliding club offered to buy the land some years ago but the Council insisted on selling the airfield to Yorkshire forward.

    I do hope that the gliding club gets to stay. They have looked after the airfield for the last 28 years. The rest being returned to farm land and public footpaths. It is a wonderful atmospheric place. Though most buildings are gone all three runways are still intact. A really peaceful place. A gliding club is a suitable fitting tribute to the memories of the airmen who flew from there not to return. All the locals want it to remain as it is.... But will Selby Council or Yorkshire Forward listen?

    I really don't want it to turn into yet another anonymous industrial estate!

    Where is that lottery win when you need one!

    Paul.

    "Life at Burn"
