Very short notice , sorry , but a new 158 Squadron memorial will be unveiled on Saturday 16th May 2009 on the site of their former wartime base at Lissett in East Yorkshire . The memorial will be dedicated by The Archbisop of York , Dr John Sentamu at 15:05 hrs with a planned flypast by the BoBMF at 15:30 hrs . The memorial has been designed and sculptured by local artist Peter Naylor of Beverley and sponsored by Novera Energy who are building a wind farm on the site of the airfield . Once operational the windturbines will carry the names of former squadron aircraft .
At present I believe the Lancaster has gone tech in Germany and requires an engine change but hopefully one of the BoBMF aircraft will still display ?
