A sombre return to the season with such sad news of our dear friend Jo Lancaster DFC. Humbling that one of Jo’s last memories of the Lancaster was this day recently at the Bomber Command Memorial in London. God speed Jo, you’ll be sorely missed. Lest We Forget

We are very sad to have lost Hurricane pilot Archie McInnes, who passed away some hours after his 100th birthday celebration on Wednesday. A hugely inspiring man; we treasure the time we spent with him. He signed our wall - please take time to read the poem. Blue skies Archie.

Happy 100th birthday to Battle of Britain Hurricane pilot Archie McInnes! Here he is last July, enthralling BBMF personnel with his explanation of how he managed to get back to flying Hurricanes after losing his left arm during a battle over Egypt.

We have kept the City of Lincoln badge on the starboard nose since the city ‘adopted’ Lancaster PA474 in 1975. It’s probably hard to spot in photos taken from a distance.
