Take a virtual tour of RAF Ventnor Chain Home Radar Station on the Isle of Wight as it is today.
Spurn head is a 3 mile peninsula in the Humber Estuary with significant wartime history.
A rare visit to the R3 ROTOR Bunker, the surface R12 building and the remaining, but decommissioned, type 85 radar at RAF Neatishead which is still operational, but was scaled down to a RRH (remote radar head) in 2004.
Not the usual sort of video we produce but this thing is awesome. The worlds largest aircraft takes to the sky for its first flight. Capable of saying up in the air for more than two weeks at a time, or carrying 10 tonnes of load and it probably uses less fuel than my land rover.
This is the bunker complex from where Admiral Karl Dönitz commanded the German U-Boat’s towards the end of WWII. It is now mostly derelict, but the underground bunker remains intact.
In 1962 The Cuban Missile Crisis brought the world closer to nuclear war than ever before, but what the west didn’t know at the time was that the Soviets already had Nuke’s in their backyard! This is the amazing, secret storey of Vogelsang.
