Last month the Ministry of Defence announced the flying field site at RAF Bicester had been sold to Bicester Heritage Ltd. It plans to create a motor and aviation business park.
Rival bidder charity Bomber Command Heritage had campaigned for the past eight years to turn it into a an education centre celebrating the history of the Second World War’s Bomber Command.
The charity had been in talks with the new owner about using some of the site. But chairman Dean Overton said both organisations had different aims for the site that were not compatible because it wanted to focus on aviation and the new owner on motor heritage.
