Second World War
In November 1944 the airfield transferred to No. 7 Group Bomber Command.
The RAF station closed on 10 November 1945.
Post Second World War
After the Second World War, the airfield was placed on care and maintenance and remained inactive until allocated to the United States Air Force on 1 April 1953. The station was never occupied by the USAF and returned to Ministry of Defence control on 8 September 1955 for disposal.
Today many of the original buildings still exist. However, much of the old RAF Station has been converted to commercial use and a section of perimeter track is maintained and used by a flying club. The Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft also uses part of the site.
