August 9: The Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund’s second airshow staged at the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre was another success, held under leaden skies at East Kirkby near Spilsby with FlyPast’s own Ken Ellis providing the commentary.

Centre of attention as usual was Lancaster NX611 ‘Just Jane’, which performed taxi runs in front of the 4,000-strong capacity crowd. The owners of the aircraft, the Panton brothers, want to see Jane fly and have begun an engineering programme to enable it to happen in the future.

Very impressive sophomore effort from EK - lots to do and see on the ground, and how many displays have opened with a MS733/SF260 duo? My only criticism would be the rather pointless 2nd model display - by all means give the modellers 2 slots, but with the SAME models? Otherwise, an excellent day out - even the weather played ball!
