479th Fighter Group at Wattisham

Wattisham Airfield (Station 377)

The airfield is now known as Wattisham Flying Station and is home to a number of organisations.

These are the Army Corps flying Apache Longbows, 7 Battalion REME, RAF Search and Rescue Sea King helicopters, and Suffolk Police Helicopter Unit.

It was home to the 479th Fighter Group from May 1944 to November 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 is located two miles north-east of Bildeston, Suffolk, north of the B1078.
