THOSE who enjoy visiting the county’s aviation heritage sites could be in with a chance of winning a taxy ride for two in a Second World War Lancaster bomber at Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre in East Kirkby.

This applies to the people who take part in the Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire Passport scheme - visiting ten different locations and collecting stamps at each one.

These are: The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Centre, Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre, Cranwell Aviation Heritage Centre, RAF Digby Sector Operations Room Museum, Metheringham Airfield Visitors Centre, Scampton Historical Museum, Thorpe Camp Visitor Centre, RAF Waddington Heritage Centre, RAF Waddington Airfield Viewing Area, RAF Wickenby Memorial Museum.

The Aviation Passport scheme was successfully piloted last year by organisers Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire (AHL).

AHL is funded by a Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) award of £436,000, with a remit to work with various venues to raise the profile of the county’s aviation heritage.

The scheme runs from April 1 until October 31.

The passport is available to download under the Aviation Trails tab on the AHL website at www.aviationheritagelincolnshire.com or they can be individually requested by people contacting Debbie Roberts on 01529 308172.

To take part, you must visit all ten sites and collect a passport stamp at the venue.

Once completed, it should be returned to: Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire, PO Box 3, Kesteven Street, Sleaford, Lincs, NG34 7EF.

In return, each successfully completed Passport will receive an AHL badge and be entered into the prize draw.

Individual details about each participating site can be found at www.aviationheritagelincolnshire.com
