  • The Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre at East Kirkby is a family run museum set up over 20 years ago. It is seen as a living memorial to the 55,500 men of Bomber Command who lost their lives during WW2. An Avro Lancaster Bomber NX611, affectionately called "Just Jane", takes pride of place in the collection and is being restored to return to the skies.  There are many wartime vehicles, including a Ford WOT1 Crew Bus, the only one of its kind known in existence. A recent addition is the Mosquito NF11 HJ711 which is being restored for taxy runs.

    The average age of air crew was 22 and not even 1 in 4 completed their first tour of 30 operations. Most definitely a debt that we cannot repay but also a debt that should not be forgotten. Based on the old wartime airfield of RAF East Kirkby and retaining the original 1940's Control Tower. The Hangar is built on the original wartime hangar base.

    The Museum is built up entirely around RAF Bomber Command but the exhibits and displays span many areas of interest. The Home Front and Escape and Evasion give you a wide perspective on wartime Britain and the trials and tribulation of the Second World War. The Museum is expanding every year and it is their ambition to rebuild it to a complete original wartime airfield. Preserving the memory of Bomber Command and Lincolnshire aviation history for many years to come.
