This custom windsock manufactured by Aradyne Windsocks now flies over the 306th Bombardment Group Museum at Thurleigh, England.
The following is from Museum History found at www.306bg.co.uk/history.html
"In September 1942 the 306th Bombardment Group [U.S. 8th Army Air Force] arrived [at Thurleigh Airfield]. On 9th October 1942 a formation of B17 Flying Fortress left Thurleigh on the first of what was to be 341 daylight bombing missions over occupied Europe. The 19th April 1945 saw the Group return to their wartime home after what was to be their final combat mission of the war.
Thurleigh airfield became the first base in England to be handed over completely to the Americans, giving them full sovereignty and control of these few acres. The 306th stayed longer than any other Eighth Air Force combat Unit at a single base and longer in England than any other Eighth Air Force bomber or fighter unit."
