About This File
FSX Scenery--RAF Metheringham Fix. Metheringham airfield is located two miles to the east of Metheringham village on the B1189. The airfield opened in October 1943 as a Class 'A' bomber airfield within 5 Group. The standard three intersecting concrete runways were provided as were two T2 hangars and a B1. One of the T2s was on the technical site to the southwest, which straddled the B1189 and the other was located off the eastern perimeter track. The bomb stores were to the north and between these and the northwest runway head stood the B1 hangar. The communal and accommodation sites were located in fields to the south and west. Metheringham was also equipped with FIDO fog dispersal equipment. The station closed in 1951 and very little remains of the station now although a small visitors center with a little muisum on site.
