Description

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! RAF Mendlesham is a former World War II airfield in England. The field is located 5 1/2 miles E of Stowmarket in Suffolk. Mendlesham airfield was built in 1943 and the first flying unit based there was an RAF Fighter squadron which moved in during February 1944 and out in April. This was No. 310 Squadron equipped with Spitfire IXs and manned by Czechoslovakian pilots. With the end of military control the former technical site of Mendlesham was developed into an industrial estate with the balance of the airfield being returned to agriculture. Several wartime buildings, along with a T-2 hangar are in use. Only the faintest hint of a perimeter track remains visible. A small, but impressive memorial, subscribed to by the men of the 34th Group before their departure, is still maintained on the old airfield next to the A140 road. Some aerospace-related use still remains though: one portion of runway, although now covered with grass, is now in use by local microlight pilots and by Suffolk Coastal Floaters hang-gliding club.
