US Air Force War Memorial, Airfield Road, Podington
Podington airfield was originally built to accommodate two RAF bomber squadrons but was handed over to the US 8th Army Air Force in 1942. The 92nd Bomb Group arrived in September 1943 and the memorial tells the rest of the story. The airfield was sold off in 1961 and is now better known for its Santa Pod raceway. This memorial is located beside the Airfield Road which accesses the latter and led to the former airfield.
