History of EGFE Haverfordwest:
The Ministry of Defence established the airfield in 1941 and was used by RAF. 17 Grp. Coastal CMU. However, operations did not last very long and at the end of the war, the airfield was closed. Small scale operations survived at the airport in the form of flying club activity and small scale private flying but by 1947, formal activities at the airport ceased.
The 1990s saw an expansion of operations at the airport. A new operations room was constructed in 1990, a second hangar erected in 1996 and airport movements had increased to around 10,000 per year (higher than now), significantly more than the 1,000 per year achieved during the early 1970s. The airports profile was raised in 1996 when it played a pivotal role as a base airport in the clean up of the Sea Empress disaster of the South West coast of Wales
