Reason: Rejected New Submission
Portal Name: Croughton World War II Fighter Blast Pens
Portal Location: N51°59'34.059, W001°10'30.008"
Description: The last remnants of the now gone RAF Croughton flight line. An English Heritage historical site.

Wiki description: A blast pen was a specially constructed E-shaped double bay at British RAF World War 2 fighter stations, being either 150 feet (46 m) or 190 feet (58 m) wide and 80 feet (24 m) front-to-back, accommodating aircraft for safe-keeping against bomb blasts and splinters during enemy air-attacks.

Although the pens were open to the sky the projecting sidewalls preserved the aircraft from lateral damage, with 12-inch (300 mm) thick, 9 feet (2.7 m) high concrete centres, and banked-up earth on either side, forming a roughly triangular section 18 feet (5.5 m) wide at their base. The longer spine section behind the parking areas usually encloses a narrow corridor for aircrew and servicing personnel to use as an air raid shelters.

RAF Croughton World War II Jet fighter pens ha e been denied twice. It's an English Heritage site. Can I get some feedback on why this is happening? Thank you.

Why are people nuts...and I'm not talking about the shooter.  Seriously, far right, far left, it doesn't matter. This is just ill-thought rhetoric.
