The site of the former RAF Misson, Nottinghamshire, is located 7 miles south east of Doncaster,
and approximately 1-mile (1.6 km) south east of the former RAF Finningley airbase now Doncaster Robin Hood International Airport.
RAF Misson is a former 850-acre (3.4 km2) bombing range used by aircraft predominantly based at 25 and 18 OTU
at nearby RAF Finningley during the Second World War.
The base later became a Bristol Bloodhound surface-to-air missile battery location as part of No. 94 Squadron RAF and was installed
to protect the V Bomber location at Finningley.
For many years the location became known locally as the RAF Dump where the RAF dismantled old aircraft, vehicles and weaponry.
This is a 60 acre, former military site, giving us an operating area including warehousing units,
hard standing areas and full workshop and paintshop facilities.
