Runway construction JLP01_08_008198

RAF Gaydon, Gaydon, Stratford-on-Avon, Warwickshire. A man working during the construction of Gaydon Airfield, using a lever tool to remove a rivet fastening from shuttering formwork running along the edge of the runway.
Work began on the construction of a runway at Gaydon Airfield in early 1952. As part of the project, a former runway, largely abandoned following the Second World War, was superseded by a newly constructed runway nearly 1 3/4 miles long and 200 feet wide. Also built were access tracks and a taxi-track
