I posted this on the Robin Hood Airport talk page and will post it here also:

As most of the history of Doncaster Airport is included in RAF Finningley should these two articles be merged as: it is effectively the same airport BUT RAF Finningley was effectively a different operating airport, 'Robin Hood' is just on the same site. So should the articles be merged or should a separatye history section be added to the current article, what do people think? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dbertman (talkcontribs) 19:04, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

< RAF Finningley is a former Royal Air Force station >

We don't say 'Henry VIII is a former English King', and I don't think the text I've quoted - the first in the article - makes a lot of sense in the same way. (I hesitate to edit, not knowing if there is an official policy about this sort of thing, but I think 'RAF Finningley was an RAF station east of Doncaster &c.' reads more sensibly).
