Missile inspection and preparation buildings
During the late 1970s a group of standard NATO munitions storage buildings > LinkExternal link were constructed on the site of the airfield’s refurbished former bomb and ammunitions storage area to the east of the flying field. An entry control point housing offices is situated at the centre and to the rear are the missile inspection and preparation buildings. Some of the old signage has survived on the walls > LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link.
RAF Coltishall
The station opened in 1939 as a fighter airfield during WW2. It later became a station for night fighters and then for ground attack aircraft until it was closed in 2006. Coltishall was the last surviving operational RAF airfield involved in the Battle of Britain other than RAF Northolt. The station was home to more than 80 fighter squadrons during its time of operation and 207 enemy aircraft were destroyed during the war. The airfield is currently owned by Norfolk County Council, with most of the former domestic site now being occupied by HMP Bure. See also: LinkExternal link
