Cowes (Somerton/Northwood aerodrome)

The Spartan Aircraft at left probably dates this to the early 1930s. At centre is probably an Avro 504. Today (2016) the site is a radar development facility and factory operated by BAE Systems. The factory has been operated by several companies in recent decades but is perhaps better remembered by ATC as the home of Plessey Radar.
