It opened in April 1944 and although it was originally intended for use by the United States Army Air Force, it was used initially by 3 Group in Bomber Command as a satellite station for RAF Stradishall. From May 1944 to October 1944 the station was home to the Stirlings of 1657 Heavy Conversion Unit. In December 1944 the station was transferred to 38 (Airborne Force) Group which used Stirlings to tow Horsa gliders during the Rhine crossing campaign.
