It opened in the summer of 1941 as part of 1 Group but it soon proved unsuitable as the flight path was effectively blocked by the balloon barrage protecting Hull. Temporary use of the station was made by a Target Towing Flight and Fighter Command before it was taken over in July 1942 by the United States Army Air Force and used as a fighter training station until the end of the war.
