VISITING THE HISTORIC AVIATION SITES OF “BOMBER COUNTY”- POST 16

Lincolnshire is known as Bomber County because of the sheer number of RAF bases that were built there during World War Two. Lincolnshire was an ideal spot for these because of the flat landscape (suitable for airfields) and its position which made Germany a not too distant target.

This month I have got the chance to visit all the important aviation sites in Lincolnshire to look around and take photographs because I have a commission to write about them in a national newspaper to link in with 2018 being the Centenary year of the RAF.

I have already visited the Petwood Hotel in Woodhall Spa which was used as the Officers Mess of the Dambusters and is full of memorabilia. I shall be posting on this blog about this and all my other visits. (Most of them are open to the public at certain times so you will be able to visit them too!)
