What’s Here

USAAF Station 153, Framlingham, was home to the B-17s of the 390th Bomb Group in World War Two. The restored wartime control tower here presents a history of the base and the 390th. Several recovered WW2 aero engines and parts of aircraft can also be found on display here, along with many other exhibits connected with its wartime past. The Nissen huts close-by house The British Resistance Organisation Museum (which would have organised the resistance had Britain been invaded by Germany) and a tea room. This attraction was known as the 390th Bomb Group Memorial Air Museum until 1997.

Directions

At Parham Airfield, just south of Framlingham, on the B1116 north of Woodbridge in Suffolk. Signposted from the A12, two miles from Marlesford/Little Glemham, (turn off the A12 opposite Glemham Hall).
