Specially arranged and rung to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Royal Air Force on 1st April 1918.
Here in Lincolnshire, the home of the RAF, we are privileged to regularly hear the distinctive roar of the Merlin engines from the Avro Lancaster Bomber based with the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight at RAF Coningsby and to see the awesome sight of the Red Arrows acrobatic team practicing over their base at RAF Scampton, the home of the famous Dambusters.
Lincolnshire still plays an important part in the RAF with front-line bases at RAF Waddington & RAF Coningsby, and training at RAF College Cranwell.
