Very sad. It was one of the nicest destinations in the South of England. Good luck to all for a rapid rebuild, I hope!

No sign of any repair work whatsoever as yet. Not even covered the roof over, there's nothing left anyway.......but I'm sure this could have been saved in some way..... http://i164.photobucket.com/albums/u24/PDH999/20080518_Merlin.jpg

That Merlin needs saving. It needs dumping in a vat of diesel oil for 6 months and then set about for a restoration. It will be left to rot, and within two years that aerodrome will be a Barratts/similar housing estate.
