    Lancaster Bomber Start-up Tonight

    Yes I know it's in the wrong section, but it's such a cracking meet-up, and I'd hate anyone within reach to miss it.

    Lincs bike-night tonight is at East Kirkby Heritage Airfield, Lincs, and they will have their Lancaster bomber out.

    When they fire-up all four of those Rolls Royce Merlin V12's at very close quarters it is a sight to be seen, heard and felt!

    Gathering starts from 6pm, I think that the they fire up the beast at 8.0pm but double check lincs bike-night web site.

    Link to Airfield..

    £5.00 entry to a worthy cause.

    If you are into bikes, WW2 stuff, planes, engines, memorabilia, photos, wreckage and history etc it's a great event. It's like stepping back in time.

    They even supply a little square wooden footprint for your bike stand if you park it on the grass!

    Food too.

    And the aircraft appears in this quite extraordinary story of an RAF flight engineer who bailed out of a damaged Lanc in 1944 and who made a gripping "home run" back to Blighty
