Finding out what makes an airport tick with a trip to Humberside Airport on Wednesday, August 26.

Caistor Arts and Heritage Centre has organised this event on a one-off basis and numbers are restricted to 25.

Guests will have escorted tours of the new Air Sea Rescue hangar and helicopters, there will be a look at the Humberside Police helicopter hangar and visitors will also be shown how air traffic works in the Control Tower and approach control rooms.

Heliyorks and The POM Flying Club in Walgate Hangar are opening up their doors for visitors to view light aircraft and helicopters and there is a chance to sort out a trial plane or helicopter flight over the Lincolnshire Wolds at some time in the future.

A picnic lunch is included in the £20 cost for each adult, as is bus transfer to and from Caistor.

The charge for children aged between 10-15 years of age is £12, but they must be accompanied by an adult.
