Service for US airmen that died flying in WW2

A memorial service will be held this weekend to mark 80 years since United States airmen first started flying missions out of Norfolk during World War Two.

Hundreds of US airmen lost their lives after their units became fully operational in 1943.

Between 1942 and 1945, about 50,000 United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) personnel, external served at 18 bases across the county.
