Leavesden closed in 1994 but has a resurgence in non aviation activity, with links to James Bond, Star Wars and Harry Potter. I do wonder what its old SATCO Larry Curry would have thought.

  1. Hi
    I had 2 spells in ATC during the mid – sixties as an apprentice with DH.
    They had just got radar and had 2 ATC’s (both Colins) and the SATCO was Frank – can’t remember their surnames.My reward for making the tea was radar advisories for practise approaches and several trips to deliver and pick up light aircraft from the maintenance hangers – I was in heaven!!
