    I wouldn't like to say if it is there the skytrain that is? I think it is because the people who own the Airfield own it so I would like to say yes!! but could be wrong lol...

    Nick next time you go give me a shout if I'm around could meet up & talk tactics.. Cheers Terry.

    It's a fantastic museum and I was fortunate enough to be in the Lanc for a taxi run on 11 Nov 2009 for the 2 minute silence in the bomb aimers position. Needless to say I think I had goose bumps for the whole time. It was incredibly moving and really made me think of the 55,573 youg men who never made it to old age.

    For anyone with a remote interest in WW2 or aviation in general then East Kirkby is a must see!
