But then again maybe it's haunted!

One of the hangars still has evidence of shrapnel damage from when the airfield was bombed during the war. Lives were lost of course so maybe they're still roaming the airfield.

The sound though is, unfortunately, 20th century pipework.



Quite a few were killed in Thornaby on its airfiled, but theres only one reported ghost and he has a fetish for snooker.

Billingham was bombed during the war, cant say I know of any hauntings as a result, dare say theres been some reports, but we have to keep things realistic, just because theres been a death does not equate the place will be haunted.

Still as I have said, never been to the NEAM yet, none of the aircraft there interests me, I prefer to see them flying.

I've posted this elsewhere - but I'll mention it again here.

I live on the edge of what was once the Airfield in Thornaby and there are numerous stories of Airmen wandering around the housing estates that have been built. Just over the back from where I live - its said that a couple of planes went down when coming into land (after being shot-up) and its the airmen from these planes that reputedly roam around.

There have been one or two incidents in my home - one I could have sworn somebody was stood in the doorway of our living room and I was talking to the them thinking it was our lass and then when I looked properly, they 'vanished'.

Plus, she has often had that sense that someone is in the room with her - particurlarly near the front door as if someone has walked in when she has her back to it. Also, when I come out of my little room on a night at the top of the stairs and look down towards the front door, I often see "dark shadows" moving around down there - despite there being no windows and nothing to cast shadows or emit light down there (its pitch black) and a sense that someone is down there.

The snooker player is at the Thornaby Snooker club .. during WWII - downstairs in what is now the snooker club was the NAFFY while upstairs was an infirmary.

There is one pretty big one containing about a dozen aircraft of various descriptions and one hanger about half the size of that one .. the other hanger is more of a junk room really with bits of planes here and there and about the size of the smaller of the other 2.

I have a good friend who recounted some ghost stories to me while we where stationed together at RAF Lossiemouth. Like your story, none on the base but a few that inhabited his house. very interesting stuff.

Funny you should mention Lossiemouth.
I lived there for about 4 years and i encountered many a storie of hauntings.

There was a road called Dunbar Street, now i dont know any history to it but a couple of my friends lived down it. Its a very long road with houses either side of it and my two friends lived about 6 doors away from each other on the same side.

One told me of a couple of things which happened on a regular basis in her kitchen. Shed come down in the morning to find the chairs of her dining table ontop of the table!
She said on most occasions two would be on the table and the other two one would be perched ontop of the other!

This would happen on a semi regular basis. The thing that struck her was that her husband wasnt into the paranormal and neither was she so neither would benefit from experiencing these things. They just thought it was odd. They had two kids but both where way to young to lift chairs!

I went round one night and while i was there it happened! I was sitting in her front room and there was about 6-7 of us there all having a laugh etc, then we heard some noises in the kitchen, she shot up and ran into the kitchen and then called us all in, there where two of there chairs up on the table!!

I felt really spooked! I knew no one could have done it cos we were all in the front room, plus the time it took from hearing the noises to her getting to the kitchen door was seconds, so no one could have got out with out anyone seeing them!

Very odd!

My other friend used to have things go missing on a regular basis, then one morning when she woke up all the things shed lost were neatly placed on her bed!
Her husband was on nights so he couldnt have done it and again her kids where to young to have done it.
She didnt like living in the house after that.
Shed have things turn of all by themselves aswell, like kitchen equipment, blenders etc
The kettle would switch on and boil but when she went to see what was going on, it was cold!!!!
I experienced that while baby sitting for her.
I was sat in the front room, all three boys being fast asleep upstairs. I was sat just reading a book when i heard the kettle boiling, and i could hear the water bubbling. I went into the kitchen and the switch on the kettle switched off!
But on touching the kettle it was cold!

Very strange!

Maybe we should forget about ghosts and start to be cautious about kettles.
