"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.
