    Avro Lancaster at the once active airfield of East Kirkby in Lincolnshire.

    The same aircraft shot during September 2016 using a cheap Nikon D3300 with its standard zoom.

    Some digital manipulating has of course been used.

    Love the old airfields of Lincolnshire and East Anglia with this one housing this very aircraft that frequently does taxi runs.

    Frequently go near there on the A16 to my mum in Louth and always want to pop over for a look round.

    Nice pic !!! East Kirkby is a great place to go if you have a few hrs and enjoy story boards . A wealth of reading linked to interesting exhibits and relics from WW2 , that you need time to soak up , IMO!!

    And 'Just Jane' the Lanc ,that the Panton Bros saved from scrapping all those yrs ago, and which is currently held in reserve for the BBMF ,if anything (god forbid) happened to the present one !!

    I'm fairly sure that at some point in this aircraft's life it used to be the gate guardian at RAF Scampton up here in Lincolnshire. I have a memory from the 70's of it being at the main gate surrounded by an Upkeep bomb as well as a Tallboy and Grand Slam type. Always did wonder where the hell it disappeared to.

    Love Louth Lawrence and go there quite often as we live only about seven miles from there.

    Which direction, my mum's in Manby. You'd get some interesting photos on the old airfield there.

    Yes you are quite right, there would be some great photo's to be had there but access is very limited. We live just a stones throw from the site of RAF Grimsby slightly over towards the coast and that old airfield gives loads of dramatic photo's. Also of course RAF North Cotes remains are less than two miles for us. Lovin' it
