A large copy of that might be nice for the Museum in Urbana?

I'll have a stab at cleaning it up Don, but as you can see on the larger version I've had to stitch it together from a number of badly microfilmed pages.
What it shows is the initial layout plan as drawn up by the RAF, there were quite a few major changes before the 401st took it over... ;)

Yup, this dates to before any construction work started. :)
