Character Period Finger Signs For Old Aerodromes
This is the famous Art Deco Aerodrome on the South coast at Shoreham which is used for filming the popular television detective series (Poirot) It is the home to many flying clubs & was also a classic Battle of Britain RAF fighter station back in WW2 & every October the Spitfires & Hurricans return home here for the Battle of Britain Air Display weekend which is an out of this world experiance to watch
Period finger post signs would really look good here as most of the buildings are 1930's, in fact this airfield is a perfect time capsule of a prewar aerodrome, you can clearly see the old WW2 AA defences and bunkers around the perimetre road, I have taken off and landed here many times so I do hope that we can hold onto our heritage first generation airports

The Red Arrows always manage to add that classic touch to closing the air display over the South Coast
Please take the trouble to visit & use our regional airports as they need to be kept economically viable concerns as many councils would just love to sell them off for business park or housing development
