Meet Jon Davison, distinguished professional freelance photographer and producer of the highly acclaimed book, "Superbase 11, Upper Heyford Aardvarks and Ravens".

Hi,
I produced a colour book a few years ago "Upper Heyford ­ Aardvarks & Ravens" for Osprey Aerospace Publications. You will find shots of the F-111Ešs & EF-111Ašs on my website: http://eyeinthesky.com.au/heyford.html.

I really enjoyed my time at the base during my photo sessions.

Kind regards,
Jon Davison

Airfield Focus 43 "AIRFIELD FOCUS 43: UPPER HEYFORD Revisited"
by Peter Davis

Established as an RFC aerodrome in 1915 the site eventually became an RAF bomber station in the 1920/30s, with the veritable Hampden equipping 16 OTU in 1940. Taken over by the USAF's SAC in 1952, B-47s arrived and stayed until 1965. The 66th TRW took up residence with RF-101 Voodoos up to 1969. By mid-1970 F-100s of the 20th TFW arrived and replaced soon after by the F-111E Aardvark. Contains updated material to Summer 2006. Maps. B/w photos throughout.
