The following wonderful bit of aviation trivia is a snippet from that site.
"RAF Upper Heyford is the only base in the world that had an aircraft named after it. The Heyford was a twin engine, bi-plane bomber that saw service between the wars, and to my knowledge never fired a shot, or dropped a bomb in anger."
