The area covered includes most of the counties of Gloucestershire, Hampshire and Wiltshire, along with those of Dorset, Somerset, Devon, Cornwall, the Isles of Scilly, and the Channel Islands. The whole of British aviation history is reflected here from the birth of military aviation at Larkhill, flying training at Old Sarum during the World War I and at Upavon during the 1930s, to fighter operations from Charmy Down during the World War II. Postwar developments at Filton and Boscombe Down are supplemented by recent activities at Culdrose, St.Mawgan, Yeovilton, and Lyneham.

Accounts of the construction and operational use of the stations, with the aircraft types flown and units involved are illustrated by a wealth of photographs, many of them previously unpublished.
