RAF Scampton Visit

Today (Wednesday 3rd February) we visited RAF Scampton. We heard about all the local history to do with the Dambusters and Guy Gibson. We saw the’Bouncing Bomb’ and learnt how Guy Gibson won his Victoria Cross.

Our tour guide was amazing and we learnt how to survive if we were shot down behind enemy lines. We learnt so many facts. Come and see us on Friday at SHARE when all of Year 5 and 6 open up their World War Two museum.

Look who sat in Guy Gibson’s seat!

We even got to see the ‘Red Arrows’ take off and fly past!

Thank you to all our volunteers. If you fancy a great visit with the family got the RAF Scampton Heritage Trust website or pop into The Dambusters Inn in Scampton Village where there are some fabulous artefacts.
