Here are four of my best photographs of the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre’s famous Lancaster bomber, “Just Jane”, which I was lucky enough to see taxiing around the East Kirby airfield yesterday afternoon. The smell and the sound of the aircraft are just as fascinating as its appearance, so if you are planning a visit, I’d recommend checking that the Lancaster is going to be running on that day and the time its running [if I’d arrived 30 minutes later we would have missed it completely).
…and as I usually post my top five photographs, here is something completely different from the Centre’s vast collection of artifacts:

After completely ignoring this plaque for at least eight years, I noticed it today and was astonished. How could I have missed it? Only last month I was in this very shop, which is a Oxfam charity shop in its current incarnation, browsing through the second hand books and buying a copy of “The Red Badge of Courage” by Stephen Crane.
Later in the day I sat on a bench in the Market Place and looked at the spot, whilst eating my packed lunch, and tried to imagine the scene. Business takes me to Louth again on Thursday; I wonder what will be revealed to me on that visit?
