Formerly an RAF Station dating back to 1938, and with a brief spell as a Naval Air Station, Middle Wallop is the home of Army Aviation in the UK. The co-located Museum of Army Flying is well worth a visit covering Royal Flying Corps and Glider Pilot Regiment History as well as the broader story of army aviation. From the museum site (and at one time tea rooms too) the airfield operations are/were clearly observable. During the 1980s Middle Wallop regularly had more daily movements than Heathrow, albeit all VFR and (I think) negative R/T on deemed separated circuits – anyone out there who can correct/rubbish/expand on that claim and procedure?
