RAF Snetterton Heath

RAF Snetterton Heath was home to the 96th Bomb Group (Heavy) and was closest to USAAF 3rd Division HQ so many flights originated from here carrying commanding generals. General Curtis LeMay flew from here on the Regensburg raid, and later received the Distinguished Unit Citation (DUC) for the action. The 96th Bomb Group led the 3rd Division in the Schweinfurt raid, as well as bombing Axis industrial targets throughout Europe. Today the airfield is home to the Snetterton Racing Circuit.
