On the 1st March 2016 Class Four from both schools visited East Kirkby Aviation Museum. The children learnt about the Lancaster bomber 'Just Jane' and what it was like to be a crew member in the WWII. Lancaster bombers like this one flew from the airfield that was next to our school during the war.
Our museum guide told us about the awful conditions the crew faced when they were in the air. Here we learned that the rear gunner had to endure temperatures of minus 40 degrees for ten hours at a time. Over 5000 men who flew from Metheringham airfield near our school never returned.....
The Lancaster is an amazing artefact that is part of our local history.
