Fantastic piece of history nestling in some beautifully tranquil Lincolnshire countryside. Have uploaded some photos as the ones we saw before visiting were not that helpful. See previous post about the "straight runway" just outside of the E.Kirkby airfield. It all used to be part of the same field and it's very confusing when arriving with no previous reference to it. Ignore it or pay £50 to land there. Landing was straight forward but there was a large irrigation pipe running the width of the field where the concrete meets the grass. I am not sure if this is temporary but have highlighted it on one of the photos. Very warm welcome. Immaculately kept/preserved piece of history which really made me feel "the ghosts" of the place when visiting. Just Jane was in the hangar and lots of other interesting recovered artifacts and crash parts are on show as is billet and planning huts. The NAAFI served fantastic food which I had to photo and post, really good. Will definitely visit again.
