Action Stations Revisited No. 2: Central England and the London Area
The second volume of the highly successful Action Stations Revisited series updates histories of 132 airfields with military associations around the eastern Midlands and London area. Included among the numerous well-known sites are Wittering, home of the Harrier; Benson, of photo reconnaissance fame; Brize Norton, now the RAF's in-flight refueller base; Cardington, still the departure point for airship voyages; Eastchurch, where naval aviation was pioneered, and London Heathrow where the jet-set age was born. Biggin Hill, Kenley, Hornchurch, and many others, well known and otherwise, also lie among the plentiful histories recounted.
