Hello and Welcome to the Silksheen Photography website, presenting news   and reports from the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre, East Kirkby.


The Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre operates Avro Lancaster B.VII NX611

Just Jane in taxying condition on parts of the former Royal Air Force East Kirkby,

the aircraft being one of only 17 complete Lancasters remaining in the world, with just two airworthy – one in the United Kingdom and the second in Canada – but there’s the tantalising possibility of Just Jane returning to the skies as G-ASXX in

the future...


As the museum's resident event photographer, I hope these pages will encourage

a visit to East Kirkby in the near future, so that you may experience the sights and sounds of the magnificent Avro Lancaster in person.


Why Silksheen Photography? SILKSHEEN was the airfield's tower callsign during Second World War operations by 57 & 630 Squadrons, from August 1943 through

to V.E. Day in May 1945. I hope in its own small way this website will keep this important historical detail alive, and serve as an on-line memorial to Bomber Command and those who served at, or operated from, RAF East Kirkby as part of

5 Group.
