Harlaxton eventually had three grass strips of 1,300 yards, 18 blister hangars and technical and dispersed living sites. The SFTS became 12 (P) AFU (Advanced FlyingUnit – Pilots) and continued to use the airfield until February 1945. It was used as a landing ground by other training units eventually closing in 1946.
There is little to indicate there was an airfield on the site today. A few buildings survive on the technical and dispersed communal sites but the grass runways were returned to agriculture.
