History[ edit ] First World War[ edit ] At the outset of the First World War , the Isle of Thanet was equipped with a small and precarious landing strip for aircraft at St Mildreds Bay, Westgate , on top of the chalk cliffs, at the foot of which was a promenade which had been used for seaplane operations. The landing grounds atop the cliff soon became the scene of several accidents, with at least one plane seen to fail to stop before the end of the cliffs and tumble into the sea, which for the fortunate pilot had been on its inward tide.
In the winter of these early aircraft first began to use the open farmlands at Manston as a site for emergency landings. Thus was soon established the Admiralty Aerodrome at Manston. It was not long after this that the training school, set up originally to instruct pilots in the use of the new Handley Page bombers, was established, and so by the close of there were already two distinct units stationed at Manston, the Operational War Flight Command and the Handley Page Training School.
Its location near the Kent coast gave Manston some advantages over the other previously established aerodromes and regular additions in men and machinery were soon made, particularly, in these early days, from Detling. By the Royal Flying Corps was well established and taking an active part in the defence of England. At a time when Zeppelin raids were bringing the war directly to English civilians, daylight bombing raids by German ‘Gotha’ Bombers , a twin engined biplane , would have been considerably more effective were it not for the RFC’s presence at Manston.
The German air raids had lasted for thirteen weeks, the last being on 22 August On this occasion, of the 15 bombers that set out for England five did not reach the Kent coast, and the ‘spirited’ intervention from Manston-based fighters prevented those remaining from flying further west, three being destroyed outright and the remaining seven returning to Germany with dead and wounded on board.
Shortly after such formation raids and in consequence the Cabinet recommended the creation of a separate Air Ministry. The RAF was officially formed on 1 April On 10 September , No.
The people had changed and a way of life had disappeared. Wartime austerity, however, had not ended. Rationing continued, families were still separated in many cases, and homes were destroyed. Long term issues replaced the day to day survival of the war, and the economy was totally geared to munitions production and had to be turned around.
Redgrave Hall had been requisitioned for troops during the war, and following this period, and the massive repairs needed, it was demolished in , like many other large houses of the time.

Common crane that is becoming more common around UK The common crane can be seen in flight with its long legs extending beyond the tail. But the common crane, for all its large size, is a remarkably unobtrusive bird and can easily go unnoticed as it feeds quietly at the edge of a field. However, as cranes are an extremely shy and wary bird, these locations are kept a close secret to avoid any disturbance.
But, from now on, as the cranes begin to disperse, they might be seen over a wider area sometimes feeding in stubble fields on spilled grain or invertebrates or in flight where their long outstretched necks and long legs extending beyond the tail distinguish them from grey herons. On the ground common cranes can be seen to have mostly grey bodies with black wing plumes, black heads with a distinctive white facial streak and, in the adults, a red crown patch. Meanwhile, an ambitious scheme to reintroduce common cranes to the West Country is also being crowned with success.

Eglin Composite Squadron Civil Air Patrol Eglin auxiliary fields[ edit ] A number of auxiliary fields were constructed on the Eglin reservation during World War II, many of which are still in service in various roles, either in support of flight operations or special test activities. Navy used the field as an auxiliary facility for pilot training out of Whiting Field for a time, dating from early He was assigned as Assistant A-3 of Eglin Field.
Field 3 was long-associated with drone operations of the th and th Drone Groups. Aircraft were “sanitized” stripped of all identification here for the failed Bay of Pigs Invasion of Cuba. In the early s, while in a moribund state, one of the runways was used as an unofficial auto drag strip by local civilians.

Air Force officers when we first tried it. It’s a long story on how we arrived at the decision which I don’t have the space here to tell. Let’s just say that after long discussions about it we decided to accept an invitation to a private party 20 miles off base in the city of Ely. The eight couples were a mixture of American and British. I remember being very nervous and not sure if I could go through with it. In fact as part of our agreement to do this I told my husband not to expect much from me if I didn’t like what I saw and he wholeheartedly agreed.
We had already decided to sit this out and just watch what went on unless we really wanted to participate which would take both of us to agree. It was more of a party atmosphere when we arrived with lots of food, wine, and talk. I half expected to walk in and find everyone naked. They weren’t even dressed in revealing clothing.
We fought this case for over 18 months. Our client faced charges of rape, false official statement, and others. He faced life in prison, sex offender registration, a dishonorable discharge, and a Federal Conviction. Later, the prosecution claimed that he sexually assaulted two additional people, for a total of four alleged victims. He faced 14 different allegations, over years in prison, and sex offender registration. The two primary victims were scorned ex-lovers out for revenge.

The bulk of the evidence for the pre-glacial Pleistocene is restricted to south and east England and particularly to East Anglia. No direct evidence for glaciation is known from these sequences, although indirect evidence for glaciation is seen as erratic clasts in fluvial sediments. This glaciation is best developed in east- and south-central England, although sediments are known to extend as far as south Wales.
