Exploring the most Picturesque & Historic parts of England
A little bit of interesting history. The former 4 Group Bomber Command Base RAF Holme-on-Spalding Moor in Yorkshire. Known as the Land of Nod and home to 76 Squadron during WWII. Holme once had three runways but only parts of the main East to West runway now exists, the other runways were dismantled years ago. In the 1970's The airfield was operated by Hawker Siddeley and British Aerospace for test flying Buccaneers build/rebuilt at Brough. They used to tow them out there (backwards) at 4:00am with a police escort for their first flights. In addition to the Buccaneers, they also test-flew British Phantoms on various trials.
