    I am trying to research the aviation activity in the Ascot area. The Staravia company is of great interest. Do you have any information, photographs etc that may be of use.

    I am with the Bracknell Air Training Corps and we are trying put together the aviation history of the area.

    I believe we may have located an old runway 'hidden' in the forests and if it is in fact a runway what was it used for?

    Any information would be of help.

    Thanks

    Hi mate saw your message about the staravia scrap yard in Ascot and it reminded me of a story back in 1970/3 when my brother and his friend came up on this place that was hidden in the forest near the railway sidings between Bracknell and Ascot,I was about 9 or 10 at the time and until I read your storey I almost began to think that I imagined this place.My brother told us that there were the remain's of w.w2 bomber's that had been cut up and that he had been sitting in the rear gun turret of one of these aircraft.
    We as kids had to find out ourselves so paid the reture fare from Bracknell to Ascot about 25p in those days,and shaw enough as the train slows down as it enter's Ascot station on the left through the tree you could seethese large buildings and all around
    you could see ammo boxes piled high and bits of aircraft.
    Thanks for tying up the loose ends for me.
