East Lindsey aviation history features in new guide
EAST Lindsey's aviation heritage now features in a brand new guide.
East Lindsey District Council officially launched the guide at the Petwood Hotel in Woodhall Spa which was once home to 617 Squadron, The Dambusters.
The guide, called East Lindsey Aviation Heritage, introduces readers to the district's rich aviation history, pinpointing active RAF stations and former airfield sites such as Coningsby, East Kirkby, Manby, Spilsby, Strubby and Woodhall Spa.
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the famous Dambusters' raid which is regarded as one of the one of the world's most daring bombing raids.
