taken 41 years ago, near to West Thorney, West Sussex, Great Britain

Thorney Island airfield from the air, May 1976
Thorney Island airfield from the air, May 1976
This is the former RAF station at Thorney Island pictured on 21st May 1976. It had closed not long before, on 31st March the same year. I think the army use it now.

(Probably not a proper geograph as it covers more than one square and was taken from quite a way off. I have also submitted aerial views of the Naval Dockyard, Whale Island and Hayling Island taken on the same flight.)
