Using verse to remember our heroic pilots
There is still time to enter a children's poetry competition which gives the class of 2013 a chance to pay tribute to the brave pilots who fought in the I.
To mark the 70th anniversary of the young men's bravery and sacrifice in the summer of 1943, an exhibition is being staged at the Natural World Centre at Thorpe on the Hill, near Lincoln.
Called "Aviation: Our Local Heritage", it opens to the public on Sunday, September 8 and will run until Sunday, September 29.
It will feature interactive displays and stunning "nose art" from aircraft, plus informative panels about Lincolnshire's aviation heritage sites and memorials.

Dave Harrigan is the outreach and learning officer for Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire.
He said: "This is a great opportunity to allow visitors from all over the country to learn about our county's aviation heritage and the important role it has played in defence for nearly a century.
"The poetry competition is allowing our young people the opportunity to learn more about local heritage and the importance of Lincolnshire's involvement during the Second World War.
"And the quality of the entries has been outstanding – showing a real understanding on the subject of flight."
To enter, e-mail Ann Worrell at the Natural World Centre at firstname.lastname@example.org before the closing date on Sunday, September 15.
