Building R133 [Transonic wind tunnel] at former Royal Aircraft Establishment site, O'Gorman Avenue - Rushmoor

Wind tunnel built in 1939 and modified in 1956. Externally the building is generally in good condition and actively maintained but some staining of concrete walls due to corroding reinforcement. Regular tours are given but the future use of the building remains uncertain.
