Lincolnshire farmers Fred and Harold Panton why they wanted to restore a Lancaster bomber as a tribute to their brother Christopher, who along with 55,000 other aircrew of RAF Bomber Command lost his life during World War II.
Pilot Officer Christopher Panton was killed when is plane was shot down over Nuremberg on sometime between March 30-31 1944.
The brothers are 81 and 79 now; they made money farming chickens, and spent much of it in honour of Christopher.
First they bought the old airfield near their old home in East Kirkby, Lincs, and recreated the way it looked under Bomber Command.
Then as the star attraction of a museum there, the brothers bought and began restoring the Avro Lancaster. They nicknamed it “Just Jane” after the popular wartime newspaper cartoon pin-up painted on the side.
The Centre also has a Spitfire and a large number of other exhibits, making it an important aviation heritage centre.
Battle of the Bulge:
The airfield was originally built in 1943 as a Bomber Command Station and though much of the runway is still intact today it is used by local farmers as hard standing.
The airfield was featured in a 1980s BBC series about WWII airfields, and Just Jane featured in the Doctor Who Christmas special for 2011.
