Sharing Our Heritage

Introducing the American Air Museum Website Project

The American Air Museum website ( seeks to record the stories of American airmen and women based in Britain during the Second World War and the British people they met. The website showcases a collection of thousands of photographs which depict the people, planes and places that contributed to their experiences. The website can be added to and edited by anyone who registers, following a very simple sign-up process, and is completely free to use.

We expect that the content of the site will be of interest to your local community, as highlights include wartime aerial photography from English Heritage’s archive and many intriguing photographs of US troops socialising with UK civilians in East Anglia and beyond.
