RAF Benson

Updated on November 6, 2014

1960's ATC, Flight Operations, ComCen

The purpose of this page is to attract the attention of anyone who served at RAF Benson in Air Traffic Control, Flight Operations or ComCen during the 1960's. Ex-service personnel who were stationed at RAF Benson are creating a photographic memory bank and communal memory and messaging service to link all those who served at RAF Benson in Air Traffic Control, Flight Operations or ComCen; the purpose being to preserve the memory of the station and the local environs at their time and your contribution to that memory bank is invited.

it is obvious that, over time, memories will fade, old comrades will be lost, either through re-location, poor communications, forgetfulness or death and therefore what happened will slowly be forgotten. This site will preserve their memories of a moment in time. The objective is to open and maintain new links and preserve existing links with people and memories of a very special time in their lives. We invite your participation in sending e-copies of your photo's and memories of RAF Benson in order to help preserve the historical snapshot of that time and to join in the e-conversation between people with a shared experience, your initial comments are welcomed at the bottom of the page. Text and photo's may also be sent to info@thepalomacentre.com and the web master of this page will be pleased to include suitable material for you.

The remainder of this page provides further opportunities to explore related subjects. All photo's copyright DJDove except where specified.

Old haunts

The Farmers Man public house in Benson village; surely the centre of all social life in the 1960's - now a domestic property. Access could be gained through Crash Gate 6 across the runway by way of various vehicles; Crash 1, ATC landrover etc, informally of course during the progress of normal checks and patrols you understand!
