The landing ground was in use during the First World War initially under the control of the Royal Flying Corps until 1 April 1918 when the site was turned over to the Royal Air Force and was renamed from RFC Mattishall to RAF Mattishall. The site was used by aircraft intercepting Zeppelin bombers. Aircraft of 51 Squadron operated from Mattishall.
The airfield has been returned to use for agriculture.
