Green Lane, Redenhall

Crash site

Detailed history

Peter Kent was finishing a day’s lessons at school when the two American aircraft collided in April 1945, causing the deaths of 22 airmen.

More than 60 years after the fatal crash, a permanent memorial was unveiled to the crew of two bombers from the 446th Bomb Group, which was based at Flixton during the second world war. Mr Kent, who now lives in Pulham Market, decided to create a memorial to the American airmen after spending months researching the crash site and the men who lost their lives.
