RAF Pengam Moors in 1945

RAF Pengam Moors (also known as RAF Cardiff) was a Royal Air Force station and maintenance unit (MU), located on the Pengam Moors area of Tremorfa, 2 miles south east of Cardiff city centre in Wales from June 1938 to January 1946.

Prior to RAF service the site served as a private aerodrome later called Cardiff Municipal Airport. After World War II the airfield reverted to private commercial flying until closure in 1954 when all services were transferred to Rhoose airport. The runway has since been removed and the site has been covered with industrial units, private housing and a school, with the names of many roads reflecting the previous history as an airfield.
