489th Bombardment Group at Halesworth

Remaining buildings

The airfield site is now mainly used for agriculture and few wartime buildings remain.

Most of the runways, perimeter track, etc, are being used by Bernard Matthews Limited as a turkey plant.

A number of large sheds have been erected on the runways.

This is a similar situation to several other Second Air Division airfields.

There are a few derelict huts and ancillary buildings on some of the dispersed sites.

The cockpit section of a C54 is on display at the old combat mess site, which is further along the road from the memorial.
