The original buildings at Bottisham are steeped in history. Built in time for the Battle of Britain to accept the dispersed Tiger Moths of 22EFTS, who were fitted with bombs in case Hitler invaded, right through to the crucial role it played in D-Day and the role it played in the creation of the Belgian Air Force at the end of WW2.
The buildings have survived well beyond their design life of 7 years. But they now need urgent restoration to bring them back to life. Bottisham Airfield Museum wants to turn the clock back to the 6th June 1944 and restore the interior of the buildings as they were on that famous day.
This will need considerable funds to complete this restoration but we hope the museum can become both a great educational facility and also a host a number of living history events.
