1987 From Moths to Merlins The Story of Malling Airfield by Robin J. Brooks
1987 From Moths to Merlins The Story of Malling Airfield by Robin J. Brooks Royal Air Force Station West Malling or RAF West Malling was a Royal Air Force station located 1.6 miles (2.6 km) south of West Malling, Kent, England and 5.2 miles (8.4 km) west of Maidstone, Kent.
Originally used as a landing area during the first World War, the site opened as a private landing ground and in 1930, then known as Kingshill, home to the Maidstone School of Flying, before being renamed West Malling Airfield, and, in 1932, Maidstone Airport.
During the 1930s many airshows and displays were held by aviators such as Amy Johnson and Alan Cobham, flying from a grass runway.
As war approached, the airfield was taken over by the military, to become RAF West Malling in 1940, serving in the front line against the Luftwaffe. The station saw further service after the war, first with some of the RAFs first jet squadrons, and later as a US Naval Air Station.
