The Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre is a family run museum and was set up over 20 years ago. It is now widely seen as a living memorial to the 55,500 men of Bomber Command who lost their lives during WW2. It holds one of the rarest aircraft, an Avro Lancaster Bomber, in its collection along with many wartime vehicles including a Ford WOT1 Crew Bus, the only one of its kind known in existence.
We feel that Bomber Command has never been given the recognition that it deserves and we see it as our job to educate both old and young as to the acts of heroism and dedication shown by Bomber Command throughout the Second World War.
The average age of air crew, each man a volunteer, 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.
Our Museum is built up entirely around RAF Bomber Command but the exhibits and displays span many areas such at The Home Front and Escape and Evasion giving 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 our common ambition to fully rebuild it to a complete original wartime airfield preserving the memory of Bomber Command for many years to come.
The Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre is the only Airfield Museum in the Country recreated to its original design sited on an original WW2 airfield. Here you get the atmosphere of what it would have been like, and that’s what matters to us. We have here an Avro Lancaster Bomber NX611 Just Jane, which frequently performs four engine taxi runs (the only place in the world you can see this performed on an original airfield). These are unique to our museum and the only place in Europe this is possible. You can even get a ride in the Lancaster!
