Ever-popular with military and aviation enthusiasts, local historians and modelers alike, the Action Stations Revisited books are widely acknowledged as the most comprehensive reference works on the airfields of the UK.
The military airfields of Scotland and Northern Ireland, including information on the RFC (later RAF) occupation of airfields in Ireland (Irish Republic from January 1919 to December 1922), are all covered in the seventh volume of the bestselling Action Stations Revisited series.
247 locations are listed and detailed, ranging from early airship stations through to the major RAF survivors of today. Some airfields, such as Broughty Ferry, Elgin and Dunino had their service lives come to an abrupt end after the First and Second World War; others remain active to this day. Whilst a few sites have been almost erased from the landscape, others have fallen by the wayside recently as defence cuts take their toll. Detailed individual airfield histories, charting the units and general operational use of each site, supported with over 330 black and white photographs, giving these airfields and aeronautical sites their rightful place in the historical record.
