From Our Editors

Commemorating the county's rich flying history, Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre is located on the site of a World War II airfield amid the East Kirkby greenery. The collection includes a restored Avro Lancaster bomber flown during the war, and taxi rides in the cockpit are available when booked in advance. The control tower features waxwork operators and recreated audio and video recordings, while the RAF Escaping Society exhibit is a tribute to aviators who landed behind enemy lines. Visitors can stop by the memorial chapel to read the names of the RAF East Kirby crew lost during WWII, or experience an authentic black out or air raid siren. Further attractions include a Barnes Wallis Bouncing Bomb, a mock air raid shelter and a home front exhibition.

A very interesting museum which has been put together with love and care in recognition of all those who worked at the station during WW2.
