The original pair of T2 hangars were supplemented later by one B1 hangar, and in 1943 by three more T2 hangars.

It operated primarily as a Short Stirling heavy bomber & mine-layer base until April 1944, when it closed for upgrading to very heavy bomber standard.

At that moment a USAF F-16D (88-0171) entered the traffic pattern on finals for runway 23.

The F-16 collided with a USAF Lockheed C-130E Hercules (68-10942) at an altitude of 300 feet. Both F-16 pilots ejected, but the airplane crashed onto the taxiway.

Other visitors during the 1950s, when Lakenheath was controlled by SAC’s 7th Air Division, included Convair B-36 Peacemaker intercontinental nuclear bombers, plus a variety of in-flight refuelling tankers and transport aircraft.
