Airfield view
Airfield view
Seen from the green lane at the airfield perimeter, this view includes some buildings dating back to the construction of the airfield in 1937. Much of the former RAF Little Rissington has become a business park but it also houses an active Flying Training aerodrome under No.22 (Training) Group. The airfield soon came to dominate the village and the surrounding area with the residential quarters belonging to it housing nine-tenths of the population of the parish. For many years it was the home of the Central Flying School and a fascinating history is at LinkExternal link and at LinkExternal link There is a RAF Memorial Window in Little Rissington church and part of the graveyard was reserved for those killed whilst on duty at RAF Little Rissington.
