WW2 Grafton Underwood USAF Air Base – UK B-17 Bomber with a ghostly sound caught on video.





During the recording of this film at about 12 minutes and 50 seconds, a low droning sound appeared on the sound track. It only lasted about 5 to 6 seconds then stopped. We analysed the sound and it was the same sound you would hear from 2 or 3 B-17 bombers at high altitude. Crazy or what? Best heard on headphones or speakers with a good bass range. We never heard it when filming. It was quiet with only the birds in the back ground.

Just in time before this huge American Air force Base is demolished. We were unaware of instructions to demolish this once important WW2 American Air force Base when we filmed this location which is very sad.
Grafton Underwood was built in 1941 by George Wimpey and Co. Ltd. It was the first airfield in England to receive an Eighth Air Force flying unit, when in May 1942 personnel of the 15th Bomb Squadron took up residence. As a satellite airfield for Polebrook, the airfield was then home to two squadrons of the 97th Bomb Group. The airfield became home to succession of Bomb Groups, including the 305th, 96th, and 384th, all equipped with B-17s. The RAF’s No. 236 Maintenance Unit occupied the airfield after the war, before being declared surplus to requirements in 1959. A memorial to the crews that flew from the airfield was erected in 1977.
The 384th Bomb Group flew B-17s from Grafton Underwood, Northamptonshire, between May 1943 and June 1945. They were engaged in daylight bombing missions over Germany as part of the Allies’ efforts to destroy the effectiveness of the Luftwaffe by bombing aircraft assembly plants, ground strafing aircraft and hitting associated industrial sites. The Group were awarded two Distinguished Unit Citations. The first was awarded to the 1st Bomb Division as a whole for flying without fighter protection to bomb aircraft factories at Oschersleben on 11 January 1944. The second was for bravery under fire when leading the 41st Wing on a mission to bomb an aircraft factory and airfield at Oberpfafenhafen, southern Germany, on 24 April 1944.
