Description

The airfield at Tarrant Rushton, Dorset

This was once a WW2 airfield, famous for the launch of DDay with the taking of Pegasus Bridge, and later the Berlin Airlift. After the war it was used by Flight Refuelling Ltd. for Air Tanker conversions. Operational until 1982 then demolished, leaving two hangars and the perimeter track, now farmland - plus a haven for wildlife, walkers and cyclists.
