RAF Sculthorpe - 50 Years of Watching and Waiting, by Jim Baldwin

Book published by the author in 2014, 64 pages. Paperback (N6505X1)

From the rear side cover: RAF Sc'ulthorpe began life as a satellite aerodrome carved out of the North Norfolk countryside. It was closed, became Europe's largest Atom Bomber base, closed again and then became a Standby Airfield which everyone seemed to want to use for exercises or for a temporary home. Then after fifty years it was finally closed for good. Or was it? Since that time the fiying field has remained busy being used by the Army, RAF, USAF and who knows who else for training.

Local historian Jim Baldwin lives almost within sight of Sculthorpe Airfield and has spent a lifetime watching and waiting to see the activities which have contributed to the history of this famous airfield. RAF Sculthorpe, 50 Years of Watching and Waiting expands on Jim Baldwin's earlier writings on the subject and features new photographs as well as additional information giving a fascinating insight into how this little bit of Norfolk helped shape the history of Europe.
