Enjoy a unique opportunity to see a Lancaster Bomber on an original wartime airfield, and ride in it! First active in 1942, the Lancaster was one of the main heavy bombers of the RAF, becoming the most famous and successful night bomber of World War II, and world renowned as the 'dam buster'. This once in a lifetime opportunity allows you to sit in each position throughout the aircraft including the pilot's seat before a tail down taxy ride along the runway. 

Your guest speaker will be Dr Robert Owen, an aviation historian and the Official Historian of the No. 617 Squadron Aircrew Association. His interest in the Squadron extends over 40 years and he is co-author of "Breaching the German Dams" for the RAF Museum. He has assisted the authors of numerous authoritative books on the subject together with a number of TV documentaries. He has also contributed to publications for the RAF Museum, Keith Park Memorial Fund, Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and the RAF's official publication commemorating the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain.
