Here's a few more of Gosfield including a couple of original paintings just inside the doorway of the tower and one featuring Denis taxying on the runway!

We understood that there is some artwork in the tower, spoke to a guy who was unloading his van but he couldn't let us in. He did say there was some original artwork on a water tank near a runway head. We found it but not sure of it's originality though.

The Pratt & Whitney R-2800 that resides or did reside on Gosfield airfield. apparently it came from a crash site at Chapel, Essex. I have lost all of the details about the aircraft this came from. I think the crash was a result of a collision between a B-24 and the P-47.

apriliaclio - Apologies nobody has replied, I'll try and help if I can though.

Sadly I have no plans for Gosfield, I am not sure if they exist but if they do the RAF Museum should have copies.

There are a couple of public footpaths crossing the old airfield and there is a few buildings left around the old bomb dump area. The Control Tower still stands, though it has been somewhat extended and modified, almost as much that you wouldn't recognise it as such now.

What other things do you want to know? Hopefully I or someone else can try to help

Cheers

Plan A is always more effective when the problem you are working on understands that Plan B will involve the use of dynamite :twisted:.

I belive but not sure if this site was part of the Airfield as I think that it was the fuel storage area, as the site is still there but very difficult to gain access to.

I have added the following link to Flash Earth.
