I was given the opportunity to have a taxi ride in "Just Jane", the Avro Lancaster as a "special birthday" present. It was a most awe inspiring event and I was honored to be able to stand behind the "pilot". The thunderous roar of the 4 Merlins will be for ever burned into my memory. I am amazed how the... More

What an amazing day! We we're initally a bit cautious about purchasing the VIP Taxi run package with the cost involved, however after the event we have only positive things to say about the expereince. From start to end it was a super day. My dad loved it and felt able to experience the sights and sounds my Grandad had... More

It's not the biggest air museum: with only two full-size craft it can't be! But, the aircraft are of a Lancaster and Dakota, two pretty impressive beasts in themselves. The Lancaster is in itself very, very poignant and you can't help but wonder about the crews that flew in them during the war. Yes, you think that of the Dakota... More

Hubby likes trains & boats & planes so I try to find something to interest him, but it also has to be dog friendly. This turned out to be perfect. I would recommend visiting on a day when 'Just Jane' their Lancaster bomber is doing its taxi runs as this is really impressive - don't forget your camera. Lots of... More

the family all met there for my Step fathers 80th Birthday. He really loved his Taxi in Just Jane. the noise and throb of the engines rumbles up through your feet. Very poignant letters from military people to families. Restaurant adequate.

The main purpose of the visit was to let my daughter see some of the things she'd been studying in school history lessons and in this respect it was certainly mission accomplished. Since my last visit the exhibits have been added to and are now better arranged. We had timed our visit for a day when 'Just Jane' is brought... More

To see the famous Lancaster "Just Jane" and to meet many interesting people everything well organised and you can take your dog with you which is a bonus, plenty to see, quite an eye-opener to think of these young men who gave so much so that we could have our freedom. Going again this Bank Holiday
