Tim Webster leads the pack along the main runway in his Range Rover TAC-R2

Deenethorpe Airfield, near Oundle, Northants, was home to the USAAF's 401st Bombardment Group (Heavy) but is shortly to be developed and turned into a new garden village.
To mark its demise, Tim Webster, supported by other members of the MVT’s South East Midlands Area and other MV owners, got permission for one last visit before the runway crushers move in. Despite constant icy rain and a chill wind, nearly 60 MVs turned up on Saturday, April 28, for the Farewell to Deenethorpe event.
A short "drumhead" service was held, with Tim Cross’s Jeep used as a pulpit, and attended by the local Royal British Legion and serving members of the USAF, RAF and Air Cadets. Then followed a tour of the perimeter track, once used by B-17 Flying Fortresses before a spectacular drive along the remaining runway.
Plans for the old airfield include a village green, shops and community hall, as well as more than 1,000 homes.
