RAF Hullvington

06-Hullvington Wiltshire 2015

As part of the MoD biological weapons testing programme during the 1960’ and 70’s a series of simulated attacks by Iron Curtain forces on the UK were undertaken by the British military. On the 16th Sept 1966 RAF Hullvington in Wiltshire was sprayed with zinc cadmium sulphate in a wide 10-mile arc from the air, with the highest concentration at the airfield.

Today the site is semi-restricted used by mainly the Army Air Corps and the Royal Air Force for parachute drop training.

Part of the site is occupied by a go-karting company.
