Hey y'all,

first posting, but I've been lurking for a while.

There's an exhibition on at Chelmsford Museum about Boreham Airfield.

http://www.chelmsford.gov.uk/index.cfm?articleid=19663

As I'm local and lived in Boreham many years ago, I went to see it on Monday and followed up with a trip to the airfield too. As it's HQ for Essex Police's helicopter, I didn't explore too much, but I did drive up to the Keep Out signs at the back of the control tower.
