Wethersfield Airfield Museum


Wethersfield Airfield Museum is located within the Ministry of Defence Police HQ in Essex and exists to record and celebrate the diverse military and social history of RAF Wethersfield. The base was home to both RAF and USAAF units in World War 2 and in the Cold War hosted the 20th Fighter Bomber Wing (later to become the 20th Tactical Fighter Wing) with nuclear armed F84 Thunderjets and then F100 Super Sabres. In 1979 RAF Wethersfield became home to the US 819th Civil Engineering Squadron (Red Horse) until inactivation in 1990. MOD Police have been the primary occupants since 1992.
