    History of this Location


    Opened in 1942 as a bomber base as part of RAF 1 Group. Traces of the third runway are still visible but it has been dug up and returned to fields. An important base for supporting the North Sea hydrocarbon fields and increasingly the Southern North Sea windfarms, with flights operated by CHC Scotia.
    As a result of the UKSRR SAR service main contract award from Apr 2015, Bristow has been building new SAR facilities due to transition here from 202 Squadron E Flt Sea Kings (from the RAF Leconfield site), on 1 Apr 2015.
