Quietly contemplating: memorial ceremony at R.A.F. Strubby
"I hope you don't mind" I said as I snapped this gentleman, with his camera around his neck, gazing thoughtfully across the throngs of people gathered at former R.A.F. Strubby on August Bank Holiday Sunday for the unveiling of the new memorial - 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.

The Lincolnshire Gliding Club carries on the aviation tradition at Strubby (LinkExternal link ). There is also a small private airstrip and flying club on the northern edge of the field (LinkExternal link.
