Apparently the two planes destined for scrap at Kemble have caught the imagination of locals. The "Cotswold Life" Magazine popped through our letterbox today and there in the middle pages was an article titled "Jumbo Graveyard for Elephants". Kemble Airfield is on a ridge so these two aircraft can be seen for miles around - they certainly look strange like two gigantic migratory birds blown off course. The article included a history of the airfield which has just survived a planning enquiry instigated by some locals (probably fairly new arrivals) because they did not like the noise! (What a waste of money). The airfield has been around for some 70 years and was used as a "ferry pool" for spares and supplies during the war.
