Google Earth Plug-in: RAF Chelveston - Aerial photo from May 1945

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


RAF Chelveston was a military air base located on the south side of the A45, 5 miles east of Wellingborough, near the village of Chelveston in Northamptonshire, United Kingdom.

During World War II the base was occupied by both the Royal Air Force and the United States Army Air Force. It was given USAAF designation Station 105.

During the Cold War, Chelveston housed some flying units, however its main role was that of a readiness station to receive USAF units from the United States in case of an emergency.

In the mid-1970s, the majority of the base was sold by the Ministry of Defence to private landholders, with the exception of a military housing area currently occupied by American servicemembers assigned to RAF Alconbury and RAF Molesworth.
