Nice pics. It's funny, the control seems too big somehow. What is more worrying is that 1989 was nearly 20 years ago!

Tell me about it! I was a young (relatively!) air loadmaster on my first tour on Chinooks on an army support exercise at Bodney living in the wartime huts! Hence the air to ground shots.

What a brilliant place Bodney is! Spent a great afternoon looking over the site with Rich (REF) and was really suprised with just how much still survives here. Heres some new shots to compliment those great older pics in this thread -

Heres some shots in and around the control tower.

Below - some views inside -

Below -..Yes hello Rich!!..now get out of my shot!! :lol:

The ops block below....i notice the chimney has dissapeared. It's still in place on the pics that Tom posted earlier.

Steps to nowhere...


My camera must have felt totally battered and bruised after exploring Bodney!! All in all it was a great explore and a big thank you to Rich for the company...and an even bigger thank you to the airfield site plan!!!

Cheers,
Steve

Came across this unusual looking pillbox at Bodney when I was there with 'stevie' earlier this week, there is no type marked on the site plan, it is not even marked on the plan as a Gun Post, which the other pillboxes there are marked like that.
