The war veterans were bringing up the rear. See also TF4480 : Quietly contemplating: memorial ceremony at R.A.F. Strubby.
An estimated twenty thousand people turned out on August Bank Holiday Sunday for the unveiling of the new memorial at former R.A.F. Strubby - see TF4480 : War Memorial, Strubby.
Also featured was a fly-past by the last 2 flying Lancaster bombers (British and Canadian) and by the Red Arrows. This was an amazing free day day out - no charge even for the parking.
For details of the Lancasters see: (LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) and (LinkExternal link.
Like many disused airfields this one is used to store piles of soil and various other materials, on the tops of which people gathered for a better view of the proceedings.
At Strubby the Lincolnshire Gliding Club carries on the aviation tradition (LinkExternal link ). There is also a small private airstrip and flying club on the northern edge of the field (LinkExternal link.
