Old Buckenham History

Old Buckenham Airfield is a former Royal Air Force Station which was built in 1942-1943 and used during the Second World War by the United States for the strategic bombing campaign against Germany.

The USAAF Eighth Air Force designated Old Buckenham as USAAF Air Station 144 and the 453rd Bombardment Group (Heavy) operated B-24 Liberators. James "Jimmy" Stewart, the Hollywood movie star, was group operations officer at Old Buckenham during the spring of 1944. Stewart's fellow actor Walter Matthau was also based at Old Buckenham.

Today, Old Buckenham hosts a two-day airshow each year which usually takes place at the end of July or beginning of August. The Old Buckenham Airshow has a 4 hour display each day and includes several warbirds such as Spitfires, Mustangs, B-17, as well as display teams and RAF aircraft such as the Typhoon.

The Old Buckenham Airshow was cancelled in 2020 due to the Coronavirus Pandemic but went ahead in 2021.
