Several of you have flagged the demise of the Lasham Decca 424 radar, having seen an advert for the aerial. Lashamofile Malcolm Hemming sent in the following to record the event.  “The Lasham Decca 424 head was decommissioned on Friday 12th February 2021. End of an era, possibly the longest serving radar in the UK”. Malcolm also has a video of the ‘toppling’!

  1. Sadly the Maintenance and Repair Organisation at Lasham (ATC Lasham Ltd) went into administration yesterday, 2 Oct 2015. The Company’s 424 might never turn again…probably the end of ‘Lasham Radar’ SRAs. SATCO Freddie Frost at 82 ends his illustrious Air Traffic career as probably the oldest valid ATCO in Western Europe, some sixty years after his first 424 SRAs at Eastleigh. Quite remarkable really…
