Working as a Volunteer here is so rewarding when you get to meet people like Simon Askew. Simon is the gent who made and flew the 1/4 scale Lancaster seen in the photo. More about its creation in a later article.
Excellent day in the sunshine with around 300 cyclists passing through on the charity ride. Great guys and gals and all very friendly. More photos on the gallery page but this one of the first rider to arrive in the 100 mile option being met by his wife. He was streets ahead of the rest and didn't stop long!!
Today our Visitor Centre volunteers enjoyed a wonderful outing to the excellent on -base, RAF Cranwell Heritage, Ethos & Centre.
We discovered amazing information and imagery, learning how this historic and iconic airfield has grown and changed from its very beginnings as an airbase, through two world wars and on to modern day practices.
A big thank you to our friendly and knowledgeable guide Ray Holloway who even taught us ‘aviation geeks’ things we didn’t know!
A fabulous morning had by all!.
A new sculpture of a Spitfire was erected on Saturday 7th May. Created by Andy Knighton. Spitfires along with Martinets and Hurricanes under the command of Les Munro (Dams fame) flew from Metheringham as 1690 Bomber Defence Training Flight. Their job was to teach Lancaster Pilots how to best evade fighters.
