Object description

Oblique aerial view of RAF Hawarden, Flintshire, from North-north-west. Part of the Vickers Armstrongs shadow factory can be seen at right with, to its left, completed Wellingtons parked in front of the Vickers Flight Shed. The hangars on the eastern and southern edges of the airfield were occupied by No. 48 Maintenance Unit and No. 57 Operational Training Unit. In the foreground Wellingtons and other aircraft can be seen staked out in adjoining fields in order to ease overcrowding on the airfield while the concrete runways and taxiways are being constructed.
