Photographed with a Lanc


If you’ve ever wanted to have your motorbike or classic car (or even a rusty banger) photographed in front of a Lancaster bomber, here’s your chance.

The Aviation Heritage Centre at East Kirkby airfield is hosting a car and Lancaster photographic event. On 14 September, it’s your chance to get your two or four wheeled transport, professionally photographed in front of NX611, otherwise known as Just Jane. Each slot costs £37 to have your vehicle photographed in front of the bomber by A & K Markham photographers, resulting in an 8in x 6in print in a strut mount to take home on the day.
