Earls Colne Airfield is a former Royal Air Force station in EssexEngland. The airfield is located 3 NM (5.6 km; 3.5 mi) southeast of Halstead, approximately 5 mi (8.0 km) east-northeast of Braintree; about 40 mi (64 km) north-northeast of London.


Opened in 1942, it was used by both the Royal Air Force and United States Army Air Forces. During the war it was used primarily as a combat bomber airfield. After the war it was closed in 1955 after many years of being in a reserve status.


Much of the airfield today is being used as a golf course. A flying club also operates from the old airfield.
