What type hangars?


Hi all

A small part of the aerodrome, beside Woodbridge Road, has made it on to britainfromabove.org and I wonder if the three hangers can be identified?

If the sites idiosyncratic labelling system defeats you, then I'll gladly help out.

Thank you in anticipation.

Rogier

RE: What type hangers?


Looks as if the pic was taken in 1947 by Aerofilms Roger, but it is too pixelated for me to pick anything out apart from [perhaps] the runway running diagonally across the top of the screen

Thanks for replying John

The first blister type hanger backs on to trees.  The second blister type hanger backs onto the same belt of trees but there are now houses behind it.  Then if I pick up the perimeter track east to west I come to a more substantial hanger, aligned at a right angle to the two blister type hangers, just before the edge of the photograph.

I hope that helps.

What is the name of the road of the houses I can see?  Then hopefully I'll get my bearings.
