About this event

Following on from our previous events at East Kirkby we are pleased to be bringing you another opportunity to capture period images, this time with the museums resident and only UK operational Mosquito during a private photographic event at the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre.
Join us this summer as we take you back to an RAF air base during WWII. The Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre provides the perfect backdrop with its authentic backdrops, buildings, vehicles and of course the Mosquito. Join us as we set cameos for your photography around the original Control Tower, Ops Room and Bunk House (inside and outside), we will have the use of vehicles such as the fuel bowser, crew bus, bomb trolleys & a RAF motorbike. 

In addition to all this we will also be setting scenes that include the Mosquito, which will also be running up her engines during the evening for us on the grass enabling you to get some fantastic images of this iconic aircraft unhindered. There will be a main focus on the people throughout the event and we will have a host of convincing re-enactors in RAF outfits, re-enacting scenes that one would have seen on a 1940s air base.
This promises to be an enjoyable afternoon & early evening of period photography, with the opportunity for close up portraiture as well as wide-angle scenes.

This event will run from 17:30-22:00
