About this event
There is magical about a Lancaster Bomber at night, especially when 4 Merlin Engines are fired up!
Following on from our previous events with Just Jane we are extremely pleased to be bringing you another opportunity to capture Lancaster Bomber Just Jane during a private photographic event at the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre, East Kirkby. Our event will start an hour before sunset at 17.00 with cameo scenes reminiscent of those dark days of WWII, scenes only made possible due to the help of our re-enactor friends that are meticulous about the uniforms and kit. Then as the Sun starts to set we will be treated to the sight of those Merlin's being fired up one by one before we experience our first engine run of the evening in what we hope will be the 'blue hour'.
Calming things down again and as the evening draws in our lights will bring a different dimension to the scenes of the ground crews loading bombs ready for the young airman to take over and prepare our plane for her next night mission. Thankfully this mission will only see them fire up Just Jane's huge Merlin Engines once again. This our second run up of the evening will be timed to hopefully give us those big night skies. Engine runs allow us to capture those superb action shots that are the trade mark of any propeller plane at night.
In addition to the iconic Lancaster we will have a supporting cast of bombs, trolley's and other WWII trucks from the Museum's wonderful collection and of course the ever faithful support of a cast of RAF Bomber Command re-enactors.
The event will run until approximately 10.00pm and offer well over 5 hours of photography, included in your event ticket will be access to the Museum from mid morning.
The Museum Cafe will be open for hot food, snacks and drinks until around 20.00.
