star this property answer text <p>For the purposes of answering this question I have taken operational base to be any RAF base that supports frontline operations, such as main operating bases and training establishments. There are 27 operational RAF bases in England: included in this are two RAF-named units operated by other Front Line Commands, and the tri-service technical training bases. There is one RAF base in Scotland and none in Northern Ireland. There are two RAF bases in Wales, which includes a technical training base. These figures do not include minor RAF units; RAF-operated diversionary airfields at Army units; sites operated by the United States Visiting Forces; sites only used by University Air Squadrons, Air Experience Flights, and Volunteer Glider Squadrons; Force Development Training Centres; Air Weapon Ranges; or remote radar and radio sites. There is one former RAF base in the UK that is in caretaker status, which is in England.</p> more like this
