AIRFIELD BOMBING DECOY Q70B

DESCRIPTION + /

A Second World War bombing decoy at Hurstbourne Tarrant that was built to deflect enemy bombing from Royal Air Force Andover airfield. This was a 'Q-type' night decoy, which displayed a series of lights to simulate an active airfield. It is referenced as being in operation from 1941 to 1942. By 1972 the site had been given over to agricultural use and no features of the decoy survive. A further bombing decoy site for Royal Air Force Andover was situated at Thruxton, although the exact location has not been identified.
