Flight Offices "BK". This 18 foot span temporary brick hut with a "T" plan was the administration office for the Flight which occupied the three fighter pens in the eastern half of the dispersal loop area. The building is sub-divided into office accommodation for flight officers, flight clerks and stores.
The leg of the "T" retains much of its fenestration, while one of the arms now has a modern up-and-over garage door. The roof is original.
In fair condition. Other details: Site 185; Map 10; Plate 35.
