RAF Ternhill (IATA: N/A, ICAO: EGOE) is a small Royal Air Force station at Ternhill in Shropshire, near the towns of Newport and Market Drayton. The station, home of Volunteer Gliding Squadron 632, was a helicopter base but is now principally used as an outpost for the tri-service helicopter training establishment at RAF Shawbury. Training flights use the airfield (as do gliders at the weekends) but many of the buildings and some local Ministry of Defence housing (much of which was sold off, some people queueing for days to buy a property) are now part of the army base known as Clive Barracks (after Robert Clive, 1st Baron Clive). In the fifties and sixties, buildings which were originally used as airfield dispersals were renamed RAF Stoke Heath and used to house third line servicing facilities.
