Maps & Heritage Sites

The American Air Museum website is a digital record of the memories and stories of the men and women of the US Army Air Forces (USAAF) who found themselves serving their country from somewhere in England, during the Second World War. It also records the memories of the British people who met and befriended them.

Via the map below and at you can read stories about cooks and cowboys, fighter aces and firemen – and every job in between. There are stories of bravery and ingenuity and also stories of sadness and tragedy.

It has been made possible through the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund, which awarded a grant of £980,000 to IWM Duxford, in December 2013, towards the redevelopment of the museum and the creation of the website.
