Details

Great Saling holds the first aerodome to be built by the Americans in this country. Andrews Field aerodome, just behind the village was started in July 1942 and built in under a year and named after one of the famous generals of their airforce, Frank M. Andrews. The hard core for the runways came from the ruins of the London blitz, men worked flat 24 hours a day to achieve construction.
