This image dates from around 2007. MCA Search and Rescue Flight buildings under construction at top right Gliders of Portsmouth Naval Gliding Club at top centre. The Hampshire Police Air Support Unit (now disbanded) aircraft can be seen on the apron in front of the control tower off the southern taxiway. At bottom centre can be seen two large hovercraft of the Hovercraft Museum and the seaplane slipway giving access to The Solent. This was used by the Naval Hovercraft Trials Unit which operated from Lee in the 1960's and 70's
