Royal Air Force Greatham or more simply RAF Greatham is a former Royal Air Force station located in Greatham, County Durham, England.
It was also known as RAF West Hartlepool and was located at Hartlepool and was little more than a grass airstrip, a satellite station of RAF Thornaby.
It was home to four of 403 Squadron's Supermarine Spitfires from 19 June 1942 to 22 January 1943; operating forward from RAF Catterick.
The airfield was once home to 645 Volunteer Gliding School, who operate Grob Vigilant Motor Gliders for the Air Training Corps. They are now located at RAF Topcliffe in Yorkshire.
Little now remains, as the site was developed after the war by British Steel Corporation.
