Rover Day and MG Display

This must rate as one of the highlights of our year.

The event takes place at the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre East Kirkby and is a display of MG Cars, Rover Cars, and these are complimented with a number of other smaller marques. On top of this the venue is superb being the home of "Just Jane" an operating Lancaster Bomber. The only thing the Lancaster does not do is actually take off but during the day the Bomber fires up her engines and taxis around the airfield

On the Right is the star of the show "Just Jane" alongside and extremely proud to be in such company are the 3 cars chosen as the best cars of the day. Well done to them on that particular ocassion.

On numerous ocassions over the years we have been treated to various fly pasts, none more so thrilling are the times when the "City Of Lincoln" part of the battle of Britain flight and only flying Lancaster in this country, treats us to a fly past and some slo-mo aerobatics
