In the real world, the airbase was opened in September 1940 and served initially as a bomber station in RAF Bomber Command.
It featured a bombing circle of around 200 acres of seeded grass, with three Type C hangars to the west, along with two further hangars and a permanent camp to the rear.
The base also housed the No. 77 Squadron and the No. 102 Squadron, each of which flew the Armstrong Whitworth Whitley heavy bombers.
Further expansion occurred over the next decade, with Coast Command taking over the airfield in 1952. Several training schools operated out of the base in the following years, including the No. 1 Air Navigation School between March 1957 to December 1961, and the Air Electronics School from 1962, which would become the Air Electronics and Engineers School. The base was closed in the 1970s.
All of the hangars and support buildings have been recreated and give the scenery a realistic feel, as does the operational and dynamic night lighting. Also included are static and AI Lockheed Neptunes and static de Havilland Vampire fighters.

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.
