RAF Snetterton Heath (USAAF Station 138) :: Shared Description

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: Link
