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.
Places MUST be pre-booked!
There is also the opportunity for you to buy a photo of yourself sat in "Just Jane" taken by our resident photographers A&K Markham. 25% of all purchases is donated to the 'Restoration of Just Jane'. They also offer a service to frame your photo along with your certificate while you wait.
Arrangements can be made with Kay or Alan on the day of your ride.
