Our standard tail down taxy rides are usually on Public Holidays and some Saturdays. You enjoy the only chance in Europe to be inside a Lancaster Bomber with all 4 Merlins running. We place guests enjoying a ride in a variety of positions inside i.e: Rear Turret; Middle Turret; Radio Operator's seat; Navigator's seat; Cockpit and just behind; Bomb aimer's position. The sound of the 4 Merlins alone has a profound effect on any one who is the least bit interested in the Second World War. The whole experience lasts 20 - 30 minutes, with the taxy run itself lasting around 15 minutes. Each guest has a certificate to take home signed by the pilot.
There is also an option to buy a mounted photo of you in the aircraft from our on site photographer for just £10.00. Arrangements can be made on the day of your ride.
