RAF North Creake :: Shared Description

The aerodrome at North Creake was opened in April 1944 and assigned to 100 Group RAF Bomber Command, a secret group tasked with developing and testing electronic warfare and countermeasures equipment. They flew a great number of aircraft such as B-17 Flying Fortresses, B-24 Liberators, Handley Page Halifaxes, Short Stirling and Vickers Wellington bombers and Bristol Beaufighter and Mosquito fighter aircraft. 100 Group headquarters was at Bylaugh Hall in the Breckland district of Norfolk.

Nos. 199 and 171 Bomber Squadrons were stationed at RAF North Creake until the airfield was closed to flying after the war. See also: Link
