Here Ivor Jones focuses on the airfields and landing grounds of North Wales, some of which continue to hold key positions today; RAF Valley is still the main Tactical Fighter Training Unit, RAF Sealand provides vital aeronautical equipment and, of course, the Airbus factory at Broughton produces the wings for every type and model of the Airbus series.
