Attention all LLA Members!
Please note that two extra Members’ Day events have been arranged for members of Lincolnshire’s Lancaster Association (LLA) during the month of May 2017.
Firstly, at the Newark Air Museum…
On the weekend of May 20-21, 2017, upon showing their membership card, LLA members can gain free entry to the Newark Air Museum’s Hastings & Shackleton 40thAnniversary Event. (Please note that while entry for LLA members is free, their guests must pay the museum’s normal entry price).
This is an open cockpit-style event that marks the 40th Anniversary of these two aircraft arriving at the museum.
The gates open are open from 10am until 5pm each day (last admission at 4pm). LLA Members will also be granted free access to the Vulcan and Shackleton when showing their Membership card. The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight has confirmed a Lancaster flypast on Saturday and a Spitfire flypast for the Sunday.

…and the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre, East Kirkby.
The Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre, home of the superb Avro Lancaster, NX611, Just Jane, has also kindly agreed to host an extra Members’ Day event for Lincolnshire’s Lancaster Association this year.
This will take place at LAHC’s home, the former RAF East Kirkby airfield, Spilsby, on Saturday May 27th. The event takes place on the same day as the LAHC’s popular Lanc, Tank and Military Machines Show.
Entry will be free to LLA Members who present their membership cards with guests paying full price.
Lancaster Just Jane is set to perform taxi runs at 11am, 1.30pm and 4pm, while the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight is scheduled to perform a Lancaster / Spitfire/Hurricane flying display (time TBA).
Looking further ahead…
Our annual Lincolnshire’s Lancaster Association Members’ Day at RAF Coningsby has been confirmed for Sunday, October 1, 2017, with the gates opening at 10am.
Details of how members can apply to attend this strictly ticket-only event will be circulated with our Spring 2017 LLA journal.
We look forward to seeing you at one of our Members’ Days soon!
