Airfield entrance - St Athan
Airfield entrance - St Athan
During its lifetime as an RAF unit the airfield was pretty much divided into two halves with separate functions of maintenance and of training. This is one side of the entrance gate on East Camp that held the training facility and some elements of maintenance.

The site is now in the hands of the Welsh Assembly Government(WAG)hence its apparent crisis of identity. This photograph shows it to be the home of Forward Support (Fixed Wing)a maintenance function, and of No 4 School of Tecnical Training.

One of two adjacent imposing gates that lead to confusion among visitors.
