Fersfield Airport
Fersfield Airport
The airfield was a satellite of Knettishall Station and was at one time used by the 388th Bombardment Group in the joint USAAF/USN project Aphrodite to use stripped down flying fortress bombers as explosive packed, radio controlled flying bombs. Pilots would take-off manually and then parachute to safety leaving the bomber under the control of another aircraft and then flown to its target in Europe. The project was not a great success.

These buildings are being used by industry but many other buildings here are slowly deacaying and are of great interest.
