Held on a warm summers evening, the annual bike night at the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre was a huge success with a staggering figure of around 1100 motorbikes visiting the museum - the riders and their passengers arrived from 6.30pm and were treated to a Lancaster taxy run by Just Jane at just after 8pm.


I won’t embarrass myself by trying to describe the motorbikes in depth; but needless to say amongst the multitude of Buell, Ducati,Harley Davisons, Kawasakis, Suzuki and Triumphs were some very appealing types that drew many people to them.


The Lancaster taxy run, with Andrew Panton and Keith Brenchley at the controls, was held in glorious light and when the four Rolls Royce Merlin 24 engines were fired up and they sounded simply wonderful, as only a Merlin engine can! Following a taxy run on the grass strip, Just Jane  halted and shut down with huge applause from the gathered bikers and their guests.
