    Default Raf Chipping Ongar - May 2002


    Not a lot left even 8 years ago. A lot of runway was torn up and used to build the M11 at Harlow!. Once uipon a time this was suggested as a site for what has now become stansted. It opened quite late in 1944 and they uised to fly B26 Maurders (the window maker) as it was know due to it;s high landing speed and crash record as a result!
