    In my experience, yes. Contractor Working Parties were/are used to carry out repair and modifications considered to be beyond RAF capability usually in respect of manpower (work required too many manhours) or specialised modifications or repairs for which a CWP already had the experience. Not just flying boats but any aircraft type which could not be 'flown-in'.

    Hi,I don't know if anyone would know but I noticed a bailey water tower just off the A428 at Comberton (adjacent to phone mast) and wondered if it was related to Bourne.I am probably completely of track but these are always around airfields.

    Make the most of it guys.According to last weeks Hunts Post the airfield has been sold for a housing development.Yet another piece of aviation heritage lost. NEIL

    Yes that is bad news Bourn has a lovely atmosphere & is one of my favourite airfields .
    I will have to pay a last visit as soon as I can & get some shots in before it disappears .

    Hi All


    Bourn has not yet been sold. However, there is a real threat to the airfield from developers.


    Bourn Village residents and the Aviation Community have banded together to try and prevent a 3,500 house development from being constructed on this historic and friendly airfield.


    If you wish to sign the e-petition, please do so. The link to the e-petition is as follows:

    There is also a facebook page which is - Save Bourn Airfield

    Kind Regards

    J
