RAF Colerne, now known as Colerne Airfield or AEF Colerne, is a former Second World War RAF Fighter Command and Bomber Command airfield located on the outskirts of the village of Colerne, Wiltshire.  

From 1940 to 1955 RAF Fighter Command units were based here. During the Battle of Britain the airfield served as a satellite field to RAF Middle Wallop, and squadrons rotated back and forth from there on a daily basis. Later it was a Training station for Night Fighter navigators.  Between May 1948 and March 1962 No. 49 Maintenance Unit RAF was based at the airfield.   

After this it became a Transport Airfield with Handley Page Hastings aircraft. In 1967 the Hastings were replaced by the Lockheed C-130 Hercules, and the Colerne based squadrons moved to RAF Lyneham, but Colerne became the main engineering base for the RAF Hercules fleet with the work being done by the Air Engineering Squadron.  In 1976 the C-130 engineering work also went to Lyneham and control of Colerne passed to the Army.  

The Team SDB scenery represents the base during the late-1960’s to mid-1970’s with the C130’s finished in the original two-tone sand/brown scheme.  

The scenery consists of:

  • Enhanced aerial view ground polygon
  • Aligned with VFR Photographic Scenery
  • Full complement of hangars and support buildings
  • Technical site and accommodation representative of the period
  • Operational night lighting
  • Navaids: ILS and VOR/DME
  • The AI aircraft and scenery object densities are scalable to suit most systems
