At one time I was going to do one of these for active airfields in Scotland, but never got round to it. I did one for Leuchars which was included in one of the 'Air Day' programs.
I think this was from 1996..... almost archaeology!

At the start of the 1940s the TB-7 was one of the most modern bomber types world-wide. By the new technology of the central loader system it reached ceilings, which were unattainable for most other airplanes of that time. It flew at heights that for the majority of the fighters of the time were unattainable, and the ceiling of 12,000 meters made her invulnerable to anti-aircraft artillery. “
