  • Haven't been back yet but was stationed at both Bentwaters and Woodbridge from 1985 to 1989. Lived in Badingham until we got base housing in Saxmundam. I crewed A-10s at both bases before going to Weapons Standardization Division. Any one stationed there then and worked the flightline I am the one who taught them ICT classes. My wife taught Piano lessons at the Recreation Center next to the Comissary at Bentwaters. And at home in Saxmundam . It would be great to hear from anyone who was there at that time and remembers those days. TSGT (Ret) Michael Little
  • Was stationed there from 87 - 91 security police. Nukes, f-16 and of course A-10 Tank killers. I learned a lot as a young man there.
  • Was stationed here Dec 78 - 80 when first A-10's came, on EOR the day Col. Thompson crashed, climbed the water tower twice, missed the UFO by 10 days.
  • Oh man I was stationed there from 88 to 90. Traveled all throughout the countryside. Had a warehouse out at Parham. And yes there were nukes there during that time. Would go to Ipswich on the weekends for a good time.
  • Very interesting place to go, extremely well kitted out with all the old kit from the cold war, Very friendly VOLUNTEER staff...If you remember the cold war (and Bentwaters & Woodbridge Bases) this is a must see, you won't be disappointed, I've been twice and you always manage to find something that you missed the last time you went!!!
