South Shoebury
ICAO: IATA:
Elevation: 5 feet


Land originally acquired by the Board of Ordnance in 1849 and has gradually expanded to take over most of the Foulness Peninsula and its constituent low-lying islands.

Situated on remote and isolated, low-lying peninsula on the Thames Estuary, with extensive tidal sand and mud flats.

Shoeburyness is the administrative centre for the main ranges on adjacent Foulness Island which once held many (mostly fixed wing) airframes. Some were permanently based (for experimentation of various sorts) and some were only passing through to have operational low level waste materials removed before being cleared for conventional scrapping.

There was a major clear out of the permanent fleet around 1993 as the UK MoD was outsourcing much of its laboratory work.
