October - Three copies of ‘THE FLIGHT’ by John Dibbs and Clive Rowley
Three lucky Club members each won a copy of the recently-published hardback book ‘THE FLIGHT’ about the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, with superb air-to-air portraits of the Flight’s aircraft by renowned aviation photographer John Dibbs and words by the RAF Memorial Flight Club’s very own publications editor, former OC BBMF, Clive Rowley.
Winners: Michelle Radburn from Lincolnshire , Anton Louwers from the Netherlands and Carol Cumming from Edinburgh.
November - A tour of Avro Lancaster NX611 ‘Just Jane’
A fantastic 30-minute tour inside Avro Lancaster NX611 ‘Just Jane’ at its home in the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre, East Kirkby, Lincolnshire, with the opportunity to take internal photos and sit in the different crew positions. The tour would usually cost £55.00 and free admission to the museum was also included.
Winner: Jason Guth from Essex
December - Two copies of the Haynes Battle of Britain RAF Operations Manual
This manual, written by Andy Sauders, describes and illustrates the ‘nuts and bolts’ of how Britain – and the RAF in particular – fought back against the Luftwaffe in 1940, and won. It also shows how the Luftwaffe was organised and how it, too, rose to the challenge. The book usually retails at £22.99
Winners: Matthias Albrecht from Germany and Sue Yates from Cheshire
