This is the view from the Watch office across the flying field, looking towards a strip wood growing beside Muck Lane. The aerodrome's Skeet Shooting Range was situated in this field 9at left, roughly in mid-distance). Only a short section remains of the main runway and the land has long since reverted back to agriculture.
RAF Rackheath (USAAF Station 145)
