This website has been created to provide information about the airfield and the museum dedicated to it. During its short four year run of active service the airfield played host to some of World War Two’s most influential participants.
Halesworth Airfield was mainly used as an American base, both the 56th Fighter Group and the 489th Bomb Group stayed here. Towards the end of the war and afterwards the base took on a rescue and training function before finally closing in February 1946.
The Halesworth Airfield Museum houses an extensive collection of World War Two memorabilia, including many items specific to the airfield. Walking through the museum visitors get the feel of what life was like in the 1940’s for the servicemen who stayed there.
A must for anyone visiting the area with anything more than a passing interest in the War.
