Steeple Morden ZipDive!  Download

File Description:
This FSX scenery package is for Former RAF Steeple Morden, USAAF Station No. 122. It includes the main airfield and 14 of the outlying sites that housed all of the inhabitants. Built in 1940 , originally a grass satellite field of Bassingbourn, Steeple Morden first accommodated the RAF No. 11 and No. 17 OTU (Operational Training Unit), flying Vickers Wellingtons and Bristol Blenheims respectively. The RAF used the airfield from 1940 to July 9th of 1943.
In July of 1943, the RAF turned the base over to the 355th Fighter Group of the 8th USAAF and concrete runways and hard stands were added. The 355th were famous for destroying more enemy aircraft on the ground than any other unit in the USAAF. They were dubbed, "The Steeple Morden Strafers" and were comprised of the 354th (WR), 357th (OS) and 358th (YF) Fighter Squadrons. Study of the site plans and other information revealed that RAF Steeple Morden was very much interwoven with the village of Litlington, Cambridgeshire . The base may have well be called RAF Litlington instead of Steeple Morden.
