East Kirkby, Lincolnshire: Saturday January 21st - 10.00am-4pm
The Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre is a family run museum set up over 20 years ago.
It is now widely seen as a living memorial to the 55 and a half thousand men of Bomber Command who lost their lives during World War Two and holds one of the rarest aircraft, an Avro Lancaster Bomber, in its collection.
It also features many rare models of wartime vehicles which cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
"If one person goes away with a better knowledge of Bomber Command, their losses and what they gave for our country, we are one step closer to repaying our debt to them."
The sky is the limit for a fun-filled, educational, family day out at the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre this weekend. Under 5s are free and you can even bring the dog!
