RAF100 Commemorate Educate Inspire
Across Northern Ireland, dotted around the countryside and near our towns and cities are the remains of historic airfields that played a significant role in the First and Second World Wars.
Where these airfields are, what survives of them, and what they tell us about aviation in the past, is important to us today as we look back in 2018 to the origins of the RAF in 1918 and reflect on its history and legacies over the past hundred years.
As part of the RAF100 Inspire programme for 2018, the information on this Action Stations! website will help you explore the traces of these airfields and contribute to deepening our understanding and appreciation of Northern Ireland’s rich aviation heritage.
The aim of this website is to provide easy-to-use practical guidance for researching and recording historic military airfields in Northern Ireland. It contains information about each of the former airfields as well as a providing a step-by-step guide to help you with your airfield research.
The results of your Action Stations! research will contribute to the Defence Heritage Project (DHP) and the work of the "Living Legacies 1914-18" Public Engagement Centre.
