  • Returning to base following the ordeal of a grueling daylight raid, when barrages of flak and the persistent attendance of enemy fighters were an accepted feature of the mission were, for the weary aircrews, moments of pure exhilaration. The entire airfield suddenly transformed into a cacophony of noise and activity as, one after another, the mighty bombers landed and came to rest. Jeeps scurried about collecting crews, whisking them away for debriefing and well-earned nourishment while ground crews, after their anxious wait, milled around their charges.

    The 34th Bomb Group's "Queenie", first home to Mendlesham today, has come to a standstill, the co-pilot already briefing the crew chief on the state of the aircraft. Another B-17 taxies while a jeep scurries across the tarmac to collect the crew of a third aircraft. Other B-17s are already parked as the last man home makes his final approach, streaming vapour from a badly pverheating engine. It is April 1945. The fickle English weather greets the returning airmen with a mixture of brilliant Spring sunshine and passing April showers.
