RAF Bicester
Bicester Aerodrome, formerly RAF Bicester, is an airfield on the outskirts of the English town of Bicester in Oxfordshire. The RAF left in 2004.
The airfield consists of 400 acres (1.5 km?) of well-drained short-mown grass, with three nominal runways (not marked) of 06/24, 13/31, 18/36, each 1,000 metres long. The field is bumpy in places due to collapsing field drains, requiring care on the part of pilots operating aircraft in those areas.
