Photo Shoot: Avro Lancaster night shoot

Located at East Kirkby in Lincolnshire, the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre is home to Avro Lancaster, NX611 ‘Just Jane’, a living memorial to the 55,000 men lost during Bomber Command operations during WW2.

Currently in taxi condition, her owners’ dream is restore her back to flight and work to that effect is now underway.    Throughout the year it is possible to witness the roar of her four Merlin engines and even experience a taxi ride.  This event was a night shoot with two engine runs, period re-enactors and a unique lighting method.

Within this portfolio you will see two images in which NX611 is illuminated from above.  We were lucky to have the Nottinghamshire & Lincolnshire Air Ambulance visit the airfield on a training flight and they kindly used their searchlight to provide some extra illumination.  They effect was quite stunning….
