East Kirkby 2008

East Kirkby Event 2008

Historic Airfield

After several years negotiation with the Panton Brothers, the LMA was invited to run a garden party type event at the East Kirkby airfield; home to Avro Lancaster MkVII NX611 Just Jane & Spitfire Mk IX MJ627. This historic airfield is built up as a memorial to Bomber Command and primarily as a tribute to their eldest brother Christopher Whitton Panton killed on a bomber raid over Nuremberg on 30th/31st March 1944.

As you can see from the photographs, a large and diverse range of large models was present and enthusiastic crowds on both days braved some heavy showers on the Sunday.
