About This File

A quick reconstruction of Membury Airfield EGOC. UK MSFS.
All models are included.

I was asked by a member of flightsim.com to reproduce Membury Airfield.
I thought the time was right to recreate the airfield (just artistic licence as I can't get down there)

RAF Membury as it was known was opened in 1942 and closed for operation in 1946. The base was supposed to be used by the RAF but the USAAF took over and stayed till the end of the war.

Membury became a hub of activity in the run up to D-Day, as the 436th worked with the 101st Airborne "Screaming Eagles" to train on glider landings for Mission Albany. Five C-47
aircraft from Membury were lost on D-Day.

Unlike many of my Farm Strips Membury is remarkably easy to find. At the side of the Membury Services on the M4 and right next to a 1200ft TV Mast.

As an introduction to the airfield a good short flight would be from EGCR Aston Down. Fly 080 until you overfly Cirencester, follow the A417 south for approx; 15nm (8 mins in the Cessna 152), passing South Cerney RAF Base, over the leisure lakes of South Cerney, with the old disused  RAF Downey on your left. Staying with the A417 as you pass over the town of Swindon where you meet the M4 turn left following it for approx; 7mns. You will see the remains of Liddington Hillfort on your right as you turn to follow the motorway.

You can't miss the airfield due mainly to the massive solar farm surrounding it.
Try landing on the hard runway - 23/05.

Thanks to Robert Pooley for the use of the airfield plan.

Unzip the file into a temp folder the copy/move the folders into your community folder.
You'll probably be asked to overwrite  if you have any of my farm strip scenery, simply overwrite to be on the safe side.
