{detailed description}There can be no doubt that Lincolnshire is a Royal Air Force county having had operational airfields even before the RAF was founded in 1918.
During World War Two, it became known as Bomber County, because of the number of bomber airfields within its boundaries. Big Skies Over Lincolnshire is a tribute to the men and women who served at some of its air bases. The photographs, with a few exceptions, have been taken from the Lincolnshire Echo archives and date from the early 1930s, up to the middle of the 1970s. During this period, many types of aircraft have flown in the skies above the county, but perhaps the ones which will be remembered most are the Avro Lancaster and the Avro Vulcan.
The pictures in the book have, in the main, been taken at RAF Scampton, RAF Waddington and the Royal Air Force College at Cranwell. However, there are some pictures from the other RAF bases around the county. But it is not just a collection of pictures of aircraft. Events and visitors to these RAF bases are also included, which will evoke memories for many. It is also pleasing to recall stories of RAF service days from some of our readers. And in any tribute to the services, it would be incomplete without a look at some of the many memorials around the county to remember those who lost their lives in the service of their country.
