Thorpe Abbotts USAAF Station 139


AirVuz contributor and pilot Sedmunds created this drone video of an air force station in East Anglia, England which was used during the strategic bombing campaign against Nazi Germany in World War II.  Thorpe Abbots, near Norfolk, was completed in early 1943 for use by the Royal Air Force.  However, it was soon handed over to the US 8th Air Force, and was an important base for B-17 Flying Fortress medium bombers flying precision daylight missions over Germany through the duration of the conflict.
