RAF Kinnell WW2 Airfield - Shooting-in Butts (5)
RAF Kinnell WW2 Airfield - Shooting-in Butts (5)
Gun testing firing range on the airfield for the alignment of aircraft wing mounted guns. There is an accumulation of sloping earth in all 5 compartments, reminiscent of the slope of sand seen in similar compartments of other aircraft gun testing butts. However, it should be mentioned that Canmore [LinkExternal link] suggests this was possibly a brick built base for a high water tank, but I don't think so.
