The 96th Bomb Group memorial
The 96th Bomb Group memorial
The memorial is situated beside the former north-south runway near the entrance to the Snetterton Motor Racing Circuit. It was dedicated on 8 September 2001 to all those who served on the airfield. The designer of this striking memorial is Martin Rance, an art teacher at the New Eccles Hall School.
RAF Snetterton Heath (USAAF Station 138)
The airfield was constructed in 1942 and completed in 1943. It was assigned to the United States Army Air Forces Eighth Army Air Force and used by the 96th Bombardment Group (Heavy). In 1952, the flying field was privately purchased and developed into a motor racing circuit which still thrives today. The race course follows sections of the old runways and perimeter track. A number of buildings have survived on neighbouring industrial estates which now occupy the former Technical site. See also: LinkExternal link
