Volunteer efforts honor Thorpe Abbotts museum
The remains of the taxiway can be seen from the top of the air traffic control tower at the 100th Bomb Group Memorial in Thorpe Abbotts, England. The tower was reconstructed to honor the squadrons and units which served from that airfield between 1943 to 1945. During World War II, the 100th BG suffered significant loss during the initial bombing missions, which earned them the nickname, the “Bloody Hundredth.” A group of volunteers, who continue to maintain the museum today, began the preservation of the site in the 1970s.
