Rustington was in World War I home to an American air base, at the east of the High Street.

Two world air speed records were set over Rustington seafront.

Set on 7 September 1946, by Group Captain Teddy Donaldson, flying a Gloster Meteor Star. Donaldson also became the first man to exceed 1,000 km/h.[6]

Set on 7 September 1953, by Squadron Leader Neville Duke, flying Hawker Hunter WB188, at a speed of 1170.9 km/h.

To celebrate, on 7 September 1996, Neville Duke returned to Rustington to unveil a plaque, marking the event, joined by a Gloster Meteor and a Hawker Hunter, which flew over the sea front.

Many famous people made their home or spent time here in Rustington. Sir Hubert Parry of “Jerusalem” fame had his House Knightscroft built in the village and lived there for 40 years. Teddy Brown, the famous xylophonist also lived here as well as the artist Graham Sutherland, during his formative years. Finally the author and playwright J M Barry stayed annually with the Du Maurier and Davies families at Cudlow House. Blue plaques are dotted about the village remind us of these properties
