Five miles from my house is Snetterton Park. It’s now better known for its raceway, where many Formula One drivers trained in their early careers. Originally, it was Snetteron Heath, a B-17 base in WW2, home of the 96th Bomb Group. There’s also a large hobby complex nearby.
A few weeks ago George Williams posted a few photos of a large-scale concrete aircraft carrier he came across while travelling in China. I remembered that Snetterton had in one of its large halls a replica of the USS Enterprise, and I thought I’d post a few images (I don’t know the scale, but it’s big!). There’s also a photo display area adjacent detailing the history of the 96th.
