RAF Manorbier was a Royal Air Force airfield in World War II. It was operational from 1933, closing on 1 September 1946. The airfield was located near the village of Manorbier, Pembrokeshire, Wales.

History[edit | edit source]

It was under the control of 11 Group and 70 Group, RAF Fighter Command.

One unit resident was the Pilotless Aircraft Unit (PAU) (5 May 1942 – 15 March 1946) which modified aircraft for unmanned operation and another was No 1 AACU 'Y' Flight.[1]

Current use[edit | edit source]

Nearby, and in current use as of 2008, is the Royal Artillery Range Manorbier (aka Air Defence Range Manorbier).
