Society Aims

The primary aim of the Society is to preserve the history of the ‘Twin bases’ of RAF Bentwaters and RAF Woodbridge, including over 40 years of occupancy at the bases by the USAF 81st Fighter Wing. The Society will record the complete history of all activities at both airfields, and this will ultimately be displayed in the Bentwaters Cold War Museum.


The Society has a monthly meeting on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 19.30 in the meeting room of the Bentwaters Cold War Museum. The meetings can be varied, with guest speakers, quiz nights and slide and film shows. Meetings are open to Society members only.


Trips and excursions to locations of interest to members will be arranged during the year. We are always open to suggestions, so if you have any ideas for a visit, then please let us know via the contact form or at one of our meetings.
