RAF Abingdon History:

The base was opened in 1932, initially as a training station for RAF Bomber Command. It continued in this role throughout World War II. After World War II RAF Abingdon became part of RAF Transport Command, and also became the home of No 1 Parachute Training School, which is now stationed at RAF Brize Norton.

1953: All flying units dispersed to other units to make way for Nos 24 and No.47 Squadrons operating Handley Page Hastings Marks 1,2 and 4. The three Mark 4 Hastings (shiny fleet} belonged to 24 Squadron, WD324, 326 and 500.

1955: 47 Squadron changed its Hastings for the Blackburn Beverley. No. 53 Squadron RAF operating the Beverley.

In the late 1960s the Blackburn Beverley's were based here.

From 1975 through to the 1990s Abingdon became a maintenance field, servicing BAE Hawk, SEPECAT Jaguar and Blackburn Buccaneer Mk.S2B aircraft.

The station was closed in December 1992. It was taken over by the British Army and renamed Dalton Barracks.
