Description

RAF Chivenor in North Devon closed as an operational station in October 1995. In The Perfect Aerodrome: A History of RAF Chivenor: 1932-1995, David Watkins records many aspects of the airfield’s long and interesting history, from the early days as a grass aerodrome in the 1930s, through perilous anti-submarine operations during the Second World War, the mundane post-war role of anti-aircraft duties and ferrying, to the exciting fast-jet training role of No. 229 OCU and No. 2 TWU. This fascinating book was compiled with the support of official archives, respected historians and former RAF personnel, including four ex-commanding officers who provided first-hand accounts together with a selection of photographs, which have been chosen from an extensive archive and published for the first time.
