History
RAF Leeming was opened in 1940 as a bomber station. It was assigned to the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1943 who operated the Whitley, Stirling, Halifax and Lancaster bombers.

After the War, RAF Leeming became a night fighter base operating Mosquitos, and later using Meteor and Javelin aircraft before becoming a Training Command airfield in 1961 and using Jet Provosts.

In 1998, it became a front line base in the air defence role equipped with Tornado F3s, until 2008 when the remaining Tornado aircraft were disbanded. RAF Coningsby took over from RAF Leeming as England's main Air Defence base in 2008.

RAF Leeming saw substantial redevelopment as a communications hub, with 90 Signals Unit being the resident unit. The only remaining jets are the BAe Hawks of 100 Squadron which provides an air combat training service as well as support to the Joint Forward Air Control Training and Standards Unit (JFACTSU).
