About

Twinwood Airfield was a WWII training airfield. During the war many famous entertainers of the era used RAF Twinwood to fly from, because it was the closest airfield to Bedford - the secret headquarters of the BBC during WWII. It was from RAF Twinwood, that Glenn Miller, the legendary WWII bandleader boarded the plane that mysteriously disappeared, sparking a mystery that has fascinated the world ever since. The old airfield lay dormant for decades until the present owners decided to restore crumbling buildings and create a lasting memory to Glenn Miller and those RAF personnel who served at RAF Twinwood.
