On August 27th, 1944, the recently promoted Major Alton Glenn Miller lead his world-famous orchestra in concert at RAF Twinwood as a thank-you gesture towards the officers and men of the airfield. Just a few months later, on a foggy December day, Glenn Miller waited in the Control Tower, before he boarded a Norseman aircraft and was never seen again.
In June 2002, Twinwood Events Ltd completed refurbishment and restoration work on Twinwood Airfield Control Tower and it is now open to the public to explore and experience.
