Coningsby has an interesting history, the airfield was home to the battle of Britain memorial flight & the 619 dambusters squadron no less.
The main site is still live & home to typhoon jets which were operational during our visit & its indescribable how loud these were closely overhead.

Anyway the weapons store are very much abandoned & I cant find much history on this, it was essentially a "off site" store for ammunition & bombs to help protect personnel on the base.

Know its not new but did this one with my lad & thoroughly enjoyed it so thought I would share.
Oh its a bit pic heavy again sorry!
