Description

DME/VOR

Are we looking at something from a James Bond movie or something visiting UFOs left behind? No this structure is found at the far eastern end of Wisley airfield and is one of 3000 dotted around the world. It is known as the Ockham VOR and is a direction indicator for aircraft. I suppose it is like satnav, but on the ground for the aircraft up in the air. I tried to find out more for you good folk but got so bogged down by technical stuff that the information above will have to keep you going - you can make head or tail of it if you want to.
