About Us

LLA website images-2561

The Association was formed from the Lincolnshire Lancaster Committee, which was a small group of people who came together when the Lancaster was moved from RAF Waddington to RAF Coltishall in 1973. The original aims of the Committee were to ensure that the Bomber would return to Lincolnshire and that a Lancaster would remain in the county for ever as a memorial to the many aircrew who lost their lives whilst based here during World War II.

Our mission is to support The Flight in keeping these historic aircraft flying. You can help us doing this by Becoming a Member of the Association or making a Donation.

Welcome to Lincolnshire’s Lancaster Association. I’m Ray Bainborough the Chairman, A position I have held since the retirement of Stuart Stephenson in 2013. I have served on the committee over 35 years, previously working with the sales side of the charity.

Over the years LLA has contributed towards many projects at BBMF mostly towards returning the Lancaster and the fighters back to wartime specification. Our most ambitious project to date donating the sum of £100.000 to help the complete rebuild of Spitfire Mk XVIe TE311. After a decade of dedication by Paul Blackah and his engineering team TE returned to the skies in late 2012 and has been thrilling the crowds ever since. You can read more about the new paint scheme for TE311 on the 'About Us' page.

We continue to support BBMF with any requests for assistance be it aircraft related or organisational.

Without you, the members, none of this is possible.

So its business as usual, let’s all do our bit to keep the Lancaster PA474 and aircraft of BBMF flying.
