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.
There is a feeling that Bomber Command has never been given the recognition that it deserves and LAHC see it as their 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 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 an ambition to fully rebuild it to a complete original wartime airfield preserving the memory of Bomber Command for many years to come.
"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."
