This morning we visit RAF Coningsby. The 1 ½ hour guided tour will explore the collection of historic aircraft used for the Royal Air Force Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. Which exists to commemorate the past of the RAF's Air Combat Power. The aircraft are regularly seen at events commemorating World War II, upon British State occasions, notably the Trooping the Colour celebrating Queen Elizabeth II's birthday, and at air displays throughout the United Kingdom and Europe. You will be able to see the Flight’s historic aircraft at close quarters and to observe the BBMF technicians working to maintain them in airworthy condition. Within the hangar, you may see: Lancaster PA474, Douglas Dakota ZA947, six Spitfires, two Hurricanes, and two Chipmunks.

This afternoon we visit Woodhall Spa a beautiful inland resort with an Edwardian character, set amidst magnificent pine woods. Regarded as one of Lincolnshire's most attractive villages, Woodhall Spa is famous for its peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. The village is at the heart of what is often referred to as 'Bomber' County 617 Squadron (the 'Dambusters') operated from RAF Woodhall Spa. Spend time visiting the Dambusters memorial site, explore the village’s Edwardian architecture or visit the Cottage museum.
