X1BK - RAF Blakehill Farm - Wiltshire, England ZipDive!  Download

File Description:
RAF Blakehill Farm (ICAO X1BK) was an RAF airfield situated in Wiltshire, England. The station was originally allocated to the United States Army Air Forces Ninth Air Force but not used. It opened in 1944 and was home for transport aircraft of No. 46 Group Transport Command. In 1948 the airfield was a satellite of RAF South Cerney and used by training aircraft before the airfield closed in 1952 and was returned to agricultural use. After WWII, GCHQ set up an "experimental radio station", a top secret research facility, on the site of the RAF's wartime airfield at Blakehill Farm. It consisted of huge communications masts arranged in mysterious strategic patterns in the middle of the old airfield. The site was still active in some capacity until the mid 1990s and traces of the former antenna bases can still be seen on satellite photographs. The site is now a Wiltshire Wildlife Trust nature reserve.
