A large number of buildings are recorded on the Royal Air Force aerial photo coverage including T2 hangar, blister hangars, ancillary buildings and earth-banked dispersal pens on the northwest side of the airfield. The current Devon County Council computerised mapbase records that the T2 hangar is still extant at SS61500970. There are also a number of other structures still recorded that appear on the Royal Air Force aerial photos, including a group of connected Nissen/Romney type huts at SS61560954.
