Airfield Location Map
The airfield map shown here covers the military airfields in the United Kingdom World War Two and post-1945. Some of the airfields were in use during World War One and the inter-war period, but no attempt has yet been made to add all the World War One locations. Each entry will be linked to an information page for the airfield, which will include the RAF Station badge for those airfields that had a badge. We are still looking for sponsors for a number of badges.
Updates: It is work-in-progress and not all airfields have yet been added; if one of you know of has been missed, or the location pin is not accurate, please let us know. The map has been provided by the Aviation History Research Centre (AHRC) and they are looking for researchers with knowledge of each airfield and who can create and maintain the database for that airfield. email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will pass on your details.
Overseas: The RAFHT is also working on a map for RAF airfields overseas, and we will add this once it is ready!
