RAF Upper Heyford

RAF Upper Heyford

The base was originally a WWI flying field and after WWII, when it was no longer required by the RAF it was leased to the United States Airforce.  The 20th Tactical Fighter Wing relocated from RAF Wethersfield to RAF Upper Heyford on 1 June 1970. For the first time since it left Virginia in 1952,all three of its flying squadrons were united on one base. Less than three months later, the wing began converting to a new aircraft - the General Dynamics F-111E Aardvark. On 12 September 1970, the first two F-111Es arrived at RAF Upper Heyford. The 20th  Tactical Fighter Wing participated in F-111 NATO and US unilateral operations Shabaz, Display Determination, Cold Fire, Ocean Safari, Datex, Priory, Reforger, Dawn Patrol, Highwood, Hammer, and others from January 1972 to October 1993 when it was handed back to the RAF.

It remained in care and maintenance for several years and although still technically owned by the MOD, the airfield side has been converted into a large industrial estate, Heyford Park, while much of the domestic side is in mothballs awaiting future development. 300 houses on this side have however been sold and this part of the base is open and easily accessible.
