The station opened in April 1943 with three concrete runways as part of 5 Group. RAF Bardney became home to the Lancasters of 9 Squadron until July 1945. 9 Squadron used Tallboy bombs, one of only two squadrons to do so. In October-November 1944 both 227 Squadron and 189 Squadron re-formed with Lancasters at the station but quickly moved out. In April 1945 189 Squadron returned and joined 9 Squadron at RAF Bardney for the last month of the war.
