About Old Buckenham Aerodrome

The Aerodrome was built in 1942 and was the wartime home of the 453rd Bombardment Group and their B-24 Liberator Bombers. Today, we're one of just 126 Aerodromes Licensed by the CAA and we have two museums, War Memorial, the UK's first electric aircraft charger (4th in the world powered by solar) and a project here is developing electric aircraft to connect the developing world. There's also a lot to do to keep the place running - we already have volunteers who man the radios talking to aircraft (we offer full, free training and accreditation) and generally help out on the aprons (full training, too). Some simply help with the vital task of mowing 126 acres and others have been assisting in our restoring over 12 acres of wartime buildings and infrastructure. Finally, there's also the small matter of the only Airshow in two counties - an award winner - where volunteers help keep 10,000 people, mostly families, happy.
