DESCRIPTION + /

A Second World War bombing decoy at Rand, which was built to deflect enemy bombing from Royal Air Force Scampton airfield. This was a 'Q-type' decoy that displayed a series of lights to simulate an active airfield. It was later used as a decoy for Royal Air Force Wickenby airfield and Royal Air Force Ludford Magna airfield. The Rand decoy was in operation between June 1940 and August 1942. An uncovered control building with its entrance fronted by a blast wall survives at the site in good condition.
