Our Airfield of the Week is Bitteswell ahead of our memorial unveiling there on Friday 13th November. Bitteswell was active from 1940 up until 1982 and a variety of roles were carried out there. The airfield is perhaps best known for it's use for aircraft maintenance and production after the Second World War. Read more here.
