This is something I’ve wondered about visiting since they started appearing a few years ago and finally got around to doing this weekend.

Frosty stuck a post up about these a while back so I’m not going to try and better his history!

Visiting under the cover of daylight I had a look at the knackered building near the terminal, wondered about the planes and had a poke about in the bunker before boarding the dinky cargo plane followed by the passenger 747.

Due to the unspeakable cold, the majority of my shots were more of a wobbly mess than usual and my camera batteries only did a couple of shots between warming - hence the lack of pics!

This was a quality explore and although it took me a while to find a way in to the 747 it was awesome to be Captain Fro in the cockpit for a couple of minutes!

On with the pics:

Dodgy old house

Stealth approach

Arty farty shots

Front wheel gubbins


Cockpit shot

Well that’s that, it was really different to my usual stuff and tootling about inside the aircraft was really good and quite eerie.

Apologies for the lack of pics but I was so cold by the time I’d got out of the bunker all I could think about was getting to the pub for a nice hot chocolate!

Thanks for looking!

nice one dude, manston is fun but can be a little dodgy when walking round airport grounds not knowing if you will be spotted or not. Its all down to luck. The little bunker as you call it is a battle command headquarters. These were at every airport used by the RAF during the second world war. Bit disapointing when you get inside and see how small it is but a nice little one none the less.
