AIRFIELD BOMBING DECOY Q21A

DESCRIPTION + /

A Second World War bombing decoy at Ruskington that was built to deflect enemy bombing from Royal Air Force Digby airfield. This was a 'Q-type' night decoy, which displayed a series of lights to simulate an active airfield. It is referenced as being operational during 1940 and 1941. By the 1970s the site had been given over to agricultural use and no features of the decoy survive. A further bombing decoy for Royal Air Force Digby airfield was located at Dorrington.
