Our grateful thanks must go to John Liles for the excellent replicas of the Shells he produced for the Lincolnshire Aviation museum. Phillip Panton was so impressed that he has upgraded his prize for the Air Ambulance. He is now giving a Lancaster tour plus two extra family tickets. Thanks Martin for negotiating the deal. Martin has also acquired an A3 size print of the BB Memorial Flight signed by all crew and technicians which we will have framed.

We have some flyers which you may find useful – these are available from the desk.
