I'm surprised by this article title (Filton Aerodrome). I worked there from 1957 to 1993 and live only 10 miles away. It might have been called Filton Aerodrome many years ago but for a long time now it has been called Filton Airfield. I think the title should be changed if there's a concensus - Adrian Pingstone 20:37, 18 December 2005 (UTC)
- The runway headings were wrong as well. Both the AIP and the WAD had same info on length and headings. CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 04:23, 24 July 2006 (UTC)
Name of article
According to the Filton Airfield website, the current correct name of the place is Bristol Filton Airport, so I intend to move this article from Filton Aerodrome to Bristol Filton Airport. Are there any objections to this? Gasheadsteve 08:06, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
- Done, since no objections were raised. Gasheadsteve 10:50, 10 February 2007 (UTC)
Spitfires at Filton following the 'Filton Blitz'
According to the RAF Filton entry, 504 (County of Nottingham) Squadron (Auxiliary Air Force) was moved in from 26 September 1940, flying Hawker Hurricane Mk1 fighters, as a result of this raid - not Spifires as stated in this article. Anyone know for sure which statement is correct? Andywebby (talk) 21:41, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
No mention of the ghost seen on GoogleEarth?
I have to admit this is weird. It's the figure of a man standing to the south of the main runway near some demolished WWII buildings. It was even reported!22.214.171.124 (talk) 18:11, 13 April 2013 (UTC)
