Bury St Edmunds' Masters of the Air

Over the course of 9 episodes, the TV series Masters of The Air will tell the legendary story of the American Eighth Air Force, a bomber unit put together shortly after Pearl Harbor and sent to bases in the East of England, and in particular the 100th Bomb Group based at Thorpe Abbotts. The 100th Bomb Group was the predecessor to the current 100th Air Refuelling Wing at RAF Mildenhall, near to Bury St Edmunds.

In Bury St Edmunds, you can visit what was the home of the 94th Bomb Group, now the Rougham Control Tower Aviation Museum, to discover the personal stories of US personnel based there and those that tragically lost their lives. You can also visit the Royal Observer Corps Operations Room (the only surviving centre of its kind in the UK) at Bury St Edmunds Guildhall which relayed messages to Rougham during WWII keeping the skies safe over the town.
