    Default RAF Lympne - Kent - August 2018


    History

    "RAF Lympne at Port Lympne was a Royal Air Force station used during the First and Second World Wars. It opened in 1916 by the Royal Flying Corps as an acceptance point for aircraft being delivered to, and returned from, France.

    It was later designated as a First Class Landing Ground. In 1919, the airfield was turned over to civil use as Lympne Airport, serving until 1939 when it was requisitioned by the Fleet Air Arm as HMS Buzzard, later being renamed HMS Daedalus II.

    In 1946, RAF Lympne closed, returning to use as a civil airport which continued until 1984."


    The Explore

    A dead easy one this, it's all open to wonder about in. Nice way to kill an hour.
    There were two bits, the underground Battle HQ and the military buildings across into the next field.

    That's interesting but the chairs and the plastic pipes look a bit out of place.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
