Originally built as RAF Glatton in 1942-3 by the 809th United States Army Corps of Engineers and housed B-17 Flying Fortress bombers of the 457th Bomb Group.
After World War II the field was passed to RAF Bomber Command but was mothballed in 1946. The intervening history is unclear, but by the mid 1970s there were portable cabins on site serving the airfield, and a dedicated building with control tower was built in 1995. In 2000 the flying club changed hands and was renamed Flying Club Conington.
