Note the many CG-4A gliders on the airfield.

Welford airfield (also called Welford Park) was built as one of the many Operational Training Unit airfields for the Southern Counties and was intended originally as a base for No 92 group Bomber Command. The original design called for a standard RAF 3 runway layout with the main runway of 2000ft aligned NW/SE to be a satellite airfield for the nearby RAF Membury due to the high risk of Luftwaffe attack. By 1942 the plan had been modified to bring the dispersed accommodation site closer to the airfield.
