    It'll look a bit different to that now. When were they taken?

    When Donny council had designs on the land, rumour was that thay would provide a new hangar across the airfield for all the GA with a ten year lease etc. The hanger was built, but the GA didn't last ten years...

    from 1990.

    I have more of these, but I figured that one would be enough. From Mar 1994. If you can't make anything out, the hangar bases from the previous B&W pics are mid-central and the runway heading (22) is centre left. If I knew how to post a weeping emoticon, I would have put one here.

    Correction! The hangar bases in the colour picture is central. The original B&W buildings were off picture extreme left.

    I am interested in the pics of the two Doncaster reinforced concrete hangars as they are the earliest UK shell roof examples. I intend to write them up in Airfield Review. Does anyone have internal views?
