I'm afraid Ansty is yet another one of those old airfields that just fades away!
Funnily enough, ive just been reading about the airfields history in a publication in which it states - " for some strange and unaccountable reason Ansty does not appear in several of the published works on the second World War airfields. It has either been conveniently forgotten or totally disregarded".
Sort of sums the place up i'm afraid!
It's a shame because aside from the hundreds of pilots who trained here in Tiger Moths,Chipmunks etc, There was a huge amount of test flying and delivery of Mosquitos, Oxfords as well as the turbojet experiment and devolopment work of Armstrong Siddeley.
How great would it be if Rolls Royce (the airfield owners) could put a small memorial up at there main gate??
