So very interesting to watch the Visitor Centre being built. Very touching thought with the design. 
Amazing the planes there, in memory of all those that flew them during the war.
God Bless them all.

It is still amazing what was achieved against the much greater power that Germany had in aircraft numbers and men.
All done with very basic flying machines. Showing at least that our aircrews had a much higher standard of training and skill in using such a basic technology.
The visitor centre is a splendid building though and well done to the builders and designers.

Did you see the follow up video film taken from the upper turret of the Lanc of the take off and then the two fighters forming up with the Lanc, very moving for me. And over the LIncolnshire country side.

Magnificent footage, Nordog, and what a fitting memorial to such brave men and women, I found the end of the piece most touching.

Very moving Nordog and as Alan says a fitting memorial to the rave men and women.
