P R E S S   R E L E A S E :       Launch of Dunsfold Airfield History Society

Formed by a group of people with a love of local history, today marks the launch of a new community group in Waverley, Surrey.

Its name describes its focus; the Dunsfold Airfield History Society (DAHS) will be concerned with every aspect of the historic events that are associated with the former military aerodrome as well as its still-existing physical assets. This includes:

  • Its origins as a Canadian-built WW2 bomber airfield
  • Association with the Berlin Air Lift
  • Early post-war civil aviation (‘Skyways’)
  • The development of some iconic British fighter jets (the Hawk, Hunter, and perhaps most importantly the Harrier jump jet)
  • The modern-day use of the aerodrome for major events such as ‘Wings and Wheels’
