392nd Bombardment Group at Wendling

Wendling Airfield (Station 118)

Wendling was the most northerly Eighth Air Force heavy bomber airfield.

It was opened in 1943 and was originally planned for RAF bomber use.

Instead it became home to the 392nd Bomb Group from August 1943 to June 1945.

All sites are now private property and you will need permission before you visit. 

The library has information on some base contacts and with their permission can pass this onto you. The Library itself is unable to organise site visits.

The airfield site is situated between the villages of Beeston and Wendling.

It is about four miles north-west of East Dereham, which is on the A47 trunk road between Norwich and King's Lynn.
