An upcoming exhibition will give visitors to Lincolnshire Archives a chance to learn more about the county’s role in the story of flight.

Entitled ‘Wings over Lincolnshire’, the exhibition showcases Lincolnshire’s rich aviation heritage.

Running for just one day, Saturday April 20, it includes official documents, photographs, maps, letters and booklets covering everything from the earliest pioneer aviators to the jet age.

“Lincolnshire’s importance in terms of aviation during war-time is well-known, but these connections stretch back to the earliest days of flying,” said Adrian Wilkinson, Collections Officer.

“This exhibition is an opportunity to trace that story through the years.”

The exhibition is open from 10.30am to 3pm at the archives in St Rumbold Street, Lincoln, and admission is free.
