Having moved to an old farmhouse 250yds from the end of the runway at Breighton about two years ago I have a passing interest in the airfield's history. In order to swat up a little bit I managed to borrow a book called "Yorkshire Airfields in the Second World War", it is written by Patrick Otter and published by Countryside Books of Newbury, Berkshire.

There is a full chapter on Breighton Airfield which contains some detail of the missions flown and losses suffered by 460 squadron both in Wellington VI's and latterly in Lancasters and Manchesters. It might be worth you getting hold of a copy of the book.

Best of luck

Magnus
