Thought provoking

22nd October 2016

Back in September, I embarked on a crazy weekend which involved a 728 miles round trip in 47 hours which took me to the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Museum, East Kirkby for the opportunity to photograph a Lancaster bomber at night.

Backed up by some resilient and patient re-enactors, the scene was set to create some thought provoking images.

As was all too often the case during WW2. airmen, young men, would head out east over the North Sea never to return

The RAF lost a total of 55,573 killed out of a total of 125,000 aircrew: a death rate of almost 45% percent. 8,403 were wounded in combat & 9,838 became prisoners of war.
