Welcome to RAF Skipton-on-Swale, Farmland some 4 miles west south-west of Thirsk in the parishes of Skipton-on-Swale and Sand Hutton, with the A61 Thirsk to Ripon road forming its south-eastern boundary was acquired for the satellite for Leeming late in the year.
The following is a video created by our colleague – and co-coordinator of TRIP – Mr Christopher Huff! The video is part of the ongoing research into Haunted RAF Airfields by the published author.
For 15 years, the author has been studying R.A.F. airfields and the paranormal phenomena that have been reported from them, and to date has accounts from over 250 haunted RAF airfields in the UK. These begin with ghostly reports at Montrose and Scopwick during World War 1 and continue to be witnessed to the present day. Why are so many airfields haunted? A variety of reasons but one that seems to be a common thread is that the airmen felt that the airfield was home, where their friends were and that is where the dead want to be.
