FSX Scenery–RAF Ridgewell UK. RAF Ridgewell 71/z miles northwest of Halstead in Essex was used by the US Eighth Air Force, which installed the 381st Bombardment Group and its four B-17 squadrons. The 381st remained at Ridgewell for two years during which time it flew 296 missions and lost 131 B-17s in action. Typical of World War II airfields Ridgewell had three crossed runways, main runway of 6000 yards and two more of 4200 yards. This was a busy airfield and one of the main B17 bases in England.
