West Malling Air Station[edit]

West Malling Air Station was also used by Kent Scouts Parascending Team (Fly High) to teach parascending and paragliding to young people within Kent —Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.113.57.161 (talk) 14:35, August 30, 2007 (UTC)

Emergency Landing, April 1943[edit]

Is there any evidence to support this currently unreferenced section? The reason I ask is that it has some similarities to a documented FW190 landing at Pembrey in Wales that is detailed here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armin_Faber. Also according to this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boulton_Paul_Defiant 1943 the Defiant the airfield was supposedly waiting for saw only limited use by 1943. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.93.187.231 (talk) 11:41, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

I have referenced most of the first paragraph of the section however my book did not mention the pilot's name or the rest of the section. Gavbadger (talk) 12:16, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
