The city of Norwich has a rich aviation heritage dating back over 100 years. Thousands of aircraft were built in the city during World War One, and it had a municipal airport in the 1930’s. RAF aircraft were stationed at Horsham St.Faith from the outbreak of WW2; from USAAF Station 123 P-47 Thunderbolts and B-24 Liberators flew many dangerous missions between 1934 and 1945. Throughout the 1950’s and 60’s RAF jet fighters were on constant alert day and night as the cold war built up. In the 1970’s Air Anglia became Norfolk’s own airline flying all over the UK and Europe from Norwich. Coming up to the present day the International Aviation Academy Norwich (IAAN) is a World first aviation training facility.
