More than a thousand people are estimated to have visited East Kirkby’s Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre each day for the spectacle – a fundraiser for the museum.

Treats included taxy runs by a privately owned Mosquito housed at the site (among its first following a major restoration project), with more from the centre’s own Lancaster Bomber Just Jane.

There was also tank firing (thanks to the Mid Lincs Military Vehicles Trust), a Dakota flypast, more than 100 re-enactors, and 1940s-themed entertainment.

Director Phillip Panton hailed the event a success, adding: “We are grateful for people coming and supporting us.”
