Wrong type of hangar, I was wondering if it could be Europe somewhere

My Google earth only goes back to 1999, and this looks more 60's / 70's to me.

Sorry Richard, our posts/edits crossed at the same time.

Farnborough I think.

Runway 25 and a Land Rover/trailer in RAE livery.

Sadly Farnborough has changed a bit since then! I keep thinking I have seen that hangar before but can't recall if it was in person of via a photograph but certainly a few decades ago.

I kept thinking Boscombe Down but I think I'm confusing it with another building.

Reminds me of Stansted. The runway heading there is currently 22, but then again magnetic headings do change over time.

Farnborough. The hangar and the runway markings are visible on Google Earth.

I think this might be what JCB found. Good catch!

The hangar is a 'standard' design for the Army Air Corps(built early/mid 60s?) and was used initially by 664 Sqdn which was re-numbered 656 Sqdn in about 1980.
It was vacated by the AAC in about 1982; the replacement of its Scouts with Lynx meant there wasn't enough room to house all the helicopters so they transferred to Netheravon and an Army 'field hospital' (M.A.S.H.) occupied it until about 1995 from when it was left empty and finally demolished to make way for the office building which now stands on the site..
