Had a wonderful afternoon at the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre at East Kirkby with cloudless skies and only a light breeze.

Highlights included two taxi runs at 1.30 and 4.00pm by resident star, Lancaster NX611 'Just Jane' and a Spitfire scramble and ME109 dogfight with airfield attack and pyrotechnics, which included some very spirited low flying by the ME109.

Various re-enactors, old vehicles etc on site also added to the theme.

Hope the following are of interest......





































A visitor







The 'old girl'

Good to see another Lanc turning and burning!

Oh nice, very very nice, thanks for sharing those.

All great shots, pin sharp etc, but that last Lanc B&W is so atmospheric!

Cheers,

Kev.

Went to LAHC on Weds 23rd. Unfortunately couldn't get there for yesterday's (24th) taxy runs.

Fantastic place! Very nostalgic. We allowed two and a half hours for the visit following a morning at Coningsby but really we should have allocated the whole day, there's so much to see and take in. Great NAAFI selling reasonably priced food and bags of "free" atmosphere.
