Remains of flying boat jetty
Remains of flying boat jetty
A stark contrast with the busy, noisy, new jetties just to the south. This jetty was one of three constructed at North Killingholme as part of a Royal Navy Air Service Flying Boat Station in 1914. Its use was short lived as the site was abandoned (after being briefly in US Navy hands in 1918) by the RAF in 1920. Thanks to Richard Croft for bringing this information to my attention.
