Hello folks, the USAAF STATION 597 MUSEUM, has acquired a nissen hut to house the collection, which consisits of original photographs, uniforms, wartime aircraft parts, and parts recovered from Langford related crash sites, additionally, many years of research has been done on many of the men and women who where stationed at Langford Lodge during the war-years, of which this will make up a large part of the displays.

27th June 2018 Update
The project has now acquired a 16ft wide Nissen Hut, with thanks to a local family who owned one at the former flying boat base, located at Sandy Bay.  The project required Frames, which we now have, and are currently being restored. Next on the list for the project, is corrugated iron sheeting, lumber, and a concrete foundation.

I would like to thank everyone who took the time to kindly make a donation over the years, of which, this has went in to the production of many exhibit boards for the museum, uniforms, and a WWII Signal Corps radio that I have managed to get working, this was in use on the American Heavy Bombers such as the B-17 Flying Fortress, and Consolidated B-24 Liberator.

Future book purchases will now go into the Nissen Hut project, to purchase corrugated iron sheets, lumber, and concrete for a foundation.

Many thanks
