Five Eyes spies gather and analyze intelligence at RAF Wyton to share worldwide in 'truly dangerous times'.
An unexpected hub of global espionage lies deep in the heart of the British countryside. The top-secret Pathfinder Building at Royal Air Force Wyton is Britain’s premier military spy base - a vast hangar that houses Five Eyes experts from Britain, the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. The Telegraph calls it ‘the jewel in the crown of British Defence Intelligence’.
The Cambridgeshire base is staffed by hundreds of linguists, scientists, psychologists, geographers, and data specialists who collect and analyze intelligence from across the globe 24/7. Sky News - one of the news organizations given rare access to the Pathfinder Building - describes it as a gray, football pitch-sized room with teams divided into sections and seated at curved desks. Monitors stream satellite and drone feeds while red, glowing digital wall clocks display time zones from Washington to Moscow, Canberra, and Wellington.
