Eighth in the East
The Eighth in the East was a three-year Heritage Lottery Funded project that ran from 2013 to 2016. It aimed to promote and record the built and social legacy of the 8th United States Army Air Force during their time here in the East of England in World War II. Concentrating on people and places, and working with communities across the Eastern Counties, the Eighth in the East explored this history to: support the work of volunteers who care for this heritage, encourage new blood into museums, develop resources for visitors and future generations, develop people’s skills and bring communities together through this shared past. All of the airfield plans uploaded onto the American Air Museum website are from Hendon RAF Museum Archive and you are able to buy full size prints from them.
