    RAF Kirton Lindsey - September 2014

    After an amazing day at the Heritage Aviation Centre, East Kirkby to see the 3 Lancasters, myself and Borolad decided to call in here for a late evening/night explore. I had attempted to visit myself a few month back with a non member but we were unsuccessful due to what I think was police training going on on site. Anyway, we had the place completely to our selves this time which was great!

    So history, a bit from wiki and a little from myself.

    Wiki stuff

    It's also worth noting that a lot of scenes including the take off and landings in the 1955 movie 'The Dambusters' (A personal Fav) where filmed here due to the airbase resembling a wartime RAF Scampton, which had since received concrete runways and the likes.

    Now, Picture time. :)

    Firstly, I don't know if I'll get in bother for this or not, but I'll have to included this of the 3 legends from earlier on in the day!

    I got to see the 2 Lancasters in the air at Duxford. Was fantastic that the Canadians were in a position to bring their Lancaster over for a visit.

    had a little recce round here today.

    Plenty access points, however security on site 24/7 (dog unit today)
    lots and lots of tin cladding over windows and doors - so need a can open for access

    I don't think secca's there 24/7 mate, we came close to them last time (Had to crawl to the tree line and do one)but on this explore there wasn't a soul on site, or the time before that... Keep going back, and have you wits about you, stick to the greenery! :)

    the brick walling at the main gate has had fencing put up to increase the height
    but there are still a few easy access points, and poorly mended holes

    When i went this year there was no security but did get a visit from the police dog section who regularly use the place for training needless to say i made a quick exit via the tree line too.

    I had a mooch around here earlier this week. There was a secca van parked onsite behind the main gate but I found a way further along left of the gate. I walked around the 'dome' the dog kennels and the rifle range but couldn't access any of the buildings around there. I didn't want to go much further with secca being there.

    I will deffo be making a return visit though - great site!
