Lissett Memorial 158 Squadron East Yorkshire
Fantastic sculpture at Lissett Aerodrome, to honour those airmen and women who gave their lives during the Second World War. The names of the 851 airmen who did not return from operations at Lissett are engraved on the sculptures which are life size and made of steel plate. Aircrew came from all corners of the world including ie British, Canadian, Austrailian, New Zealand , South African, Rhodesian and other countries.
Whichever angle or side you view the sculpture from, the airmen are always looking at you
