Hinton Airfield is a small private airfield in the south of Northamptonshire, near Brackley. The area borders Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Warwickshire, all within a few miles.
The land was acquired by the Harrison family in 1924 and appropriated from them to build the World War II airfield in 1939. It came back in the Harrison family hands in 1963 and the airfield activities were carried on in a small way, building to what is here now – gliding, parachuting and private aviation.
