RAF Leconfield Scenery for FSX/P3D
RAF Leconfield, known for a time as 'Leconfield Camp' was a Royal Air Force station in Leconfield, East Riding of Yorkshire, England. Leconfield opened in December 1936 as part of RAF Bomber Command with Handley Page Heyford bombers from No. 166 Squadron using the airfield from January 1937 until early September 1939. That same September, the first night of the war, ten Whitley bombers from Leconfield became the first British aircraft to penetrate German airspace, dropping propaganda leaflets over Germany.

In the 1950s Leconfield was a 'dispersal base' for the RAF V bomber force. Also, it was home to the Central Gunnery School.
In June 1959, 19 Squadron arrived with their Hawker Hunter F.6's before being re-equipped with the English Electric Lightning F.2 in December 1962. They were joined by No. 92 Squadron in early 1963. Conversion was aided by the Lightning Conversion Squadron (later renamed 226 Operational Conversion Unit) flying the two seat T.4 trainer. Both 19 and 92 transferred to RAF G¸tersloh in West Germany in 1965. Leconfield then became home to No. 60 Maintenance Unit (MU). 60 MU was responsible for the major servicing of the English Electric/BAC Lightnings.
The Team SDB scenery represents RAF Leconfield during the early to mid-1960ís with Lightning F.2ís of 19 and 92 Squadrons and 226 OCU, and Westland Whirlwind SAR helicopters of 228 Squadron.

About Team SDB
Team SDB, a joint effort from developers based in the UK and USA but primarily consisting of Mike Dews in the UK and Frank Safranek in the USA have been developing flight simulator scenery add-ons for over a decade. Originally beginning with work published by Alphasim (Phil Perrott) also known for Virtavia, they now release independantly.
Team SDB generally focus on UK/US airfields, airbases and military precenses and bring them to life as scenery add-ons in the simulators. They have released many titles that have been well received by the community compatible with a range of simulators such FS2004, FSX and Prepar3D. They also have other projects releases such as aircraft carrier add-ons compatible with the latest sims.
Team SDB also hope to remaster and release their scenery add-on portfolio for the new Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS) 2020 release.
