This chapter explores the development of the USAF in England as it became more established. The ambiguities about the length of the presence, whether it would be temporary, indefinite or permanent are explored, together with the differing expectations of American and British officers and officials. The tortuous negotiations over the acquisition of additional bases and the financing of this expansion are discussed, along with the problems of accommodating the deployments to a satisfactory standard of safety and effectiveness.
