Aerial view of RAF Goxhill that became the first US base in wartime Britain in July 1942.
A historic World War Two airfield control tower which helped protect Britain's skies has been transported 4,000 miles to a museum in the United States.
The monument at RAF Goxhill in North Lincolnshire was dismantled brick by brick before the materials were shipped across the Atlantic to the Military Aviation Museum in Pungo, Virginia.
The watchtower has been reassembled to look how it would have seven decades ago and is now open to visitors.
Goxhill was the first airfield to be allocated to the Americans during the conflict, with General D. Eisenhower attending the handover ceremony in August 1942.
The three year project to relocate the structure, which has cost about £75,000, was overseen by the museum's owner Jerry Yagen. When he heard the watchtower was languishing in a derelict state on the site of the former British airfield, he decided to save it to 'preserve its legacy'.
