RAF Westcott was used by No. 11 Operational Training Unit RAF during the war, along with its satellite station RAF Oakley. The station opened in September 1942 with crews using Vickers Wellington bombers for training.
The RAF moved out in August 1945, shortly after nearly 53,000 liberated allied POWs who arrived by air into Westcott as the first UK staging post in their repatriation in Operation Exodus. The station closed on 3 April 1946.
The site, which extends to 650 acres (260 ha), is now Westcott Venture Park, a business park for light industry.
