Default RAF Peterhead (Longside) Visited March 2008

Visited RAF Peterhead mid March- http://www.flashearth.com/?lat=57.51....7&r=0&src=msa -sorry there is pretty bad coverage of this area..

It was built originally in 1915 as RNAS Longside which was a base for Airships. It was officially opened as RAF Peterhead in 1941 it was closed in 1945 and auctioned off in 1959. Part of the base is used for private planes and part is owned by CHC Scotia as a support base for the Helicopters used to ferry oil workers offshore. I didn't try and enter the main area of the base as there were plenty planes taxiing etc...Although the Control Tower has been demolished I believe there are still some substantial buildings on site... I previously posted this on 28dl but I thought you guys would like to see it..
