Brough Airfield (EGNB) (disused)
It is not for public use and offers no landing opportunities.
20 Nov 13:
The end of Brough airstrip -- 10 mtr white crosses are being painted on the runway and all white marking are being blacked over.....the Buccanneer has been gifted to Elvington air museum --- and the loss of all those jobs and prospects for hundreds of people in the area have gone too.
17 Aug 13: Buccaneer departure
I hear that the last Buccaneer (the "gate guardian") will be leaving BAe at Brough tomorrow (Sunday Aug 18th), by road, for a museum.
Sadly, I know nothing more than that: no timings etc.
If that news is correct, do hope someone is there to take photos: I can't, for my camera was stolen while I was at the NEC last week :-/
10 Sep 07: Brough Hawk production
I missed it but there was apparently an article in the Hull Daily Mail w/b 3rd Sept 2007 to the effect that future Hawk production at Brough will no longer be taken out by road but will fly out from the factory airfield.
Golly gosh ... can this be true ?! After so many years of disuse . end of ATC services etc etc ?
|“||The era of Brough as a live airfield now looks finally to be over. A few months ago the conversion of the former "flying club" / air traffic control tower building into a local "business enterprise centre" (or some such) for Brough began, and the sandblasters moved in to clear up the sorry state of the exterior walls.
Now I see that all the comms and weather equipment on the roof has gone, and I'm therefore guessing that all the internal radio, runway lighting and radar consoles will have gone too though - of course - I have no way of knowing whether my guess is correct.
The main runway is still there ... for how much longer, I wonder ?
The last remaining resident flying aircraft, the B2 biplane, was apparently shipped out by road in February (reportedly its CofA expired in 2005 and was not renewed) and can now be found at the Shuttleworth Collection at Old Warden.
Sad days :(
