RAF Fersfield

Fersfield was "used by the 388th BG at Knettishall in the joint USAAF/USN project Aphrodite to use stripped down war weary bombers as explosive packed, radio controlled flying bombs. Pilots would take-off manually and then parachute to safety leaving the bomber under the control of another aircraft and then flown to its target in Europe. Several missions were flown but then halted when a PB4Y-1 exploded over England killing Lt. Kennedy, the brother of future President Kennedy."
