Site of Needs Oar Point airfield, Beaulieu Estate
In 1943-44 the photographer position would be in the middle of a north-south runway, looking south along the runway. The airfield was used as a base for over 100 Hawker Typhoon fighter-bombers in the run-up to the liberation of France. The land was returned to farming in 1945 and the runway tracking and hangars removed. In the distance is the Solent and the Isle of Wight.
