X3ER - RAF East Wretham - Norfolk, England ZipDive!  Download

File Description:
RAF East Wretham (ICAO X3ER) is a former Royal Air Force station located 6 miles (9.7 km) northeast of Thetford, Norfolk, England. East Wretham airfield was hurriedly brought into service during the early years of World War II as a satellite airfield with No. 311 (Czech) Squadron dispersed there from RAF Honington on 29 July 1940. A more permanent allocation followed in September. The squadron operated their bombers from the airfield until April 1942 when it transferred to Coastal Command. Later, RAF Bomber Command No. 115 Squadron RAF, operating Vickers Wellington Mk IIIs and later Avro Lancasters, occupied the airfield from November 1942. A plan to turn East Wretham into a "Class A" airfield was not carried through, the bomber unit moved to Little Snoring and the station turned over to the USAAF for fighter operations and in October 1943, was assigned USAAF designation Station 133 and was allocated to the United States Army Air Forces Eighth Air Force.
