Final D-Day walk of 2019 at Twyford Wood near Colsterworth
Aviation heritage enthusiasts can join a third and final D-Day walk at Twyford Wood near Colsterworth on Sunday, September 29.
Seventy-five years on, aviation heritage expert Brian Riley will tell a largely forgotten story of how the South Kesteven airfield was the launch pad for a top-secret American pre- invasion strike on the eve of D-Day.
He will be joined by Adam Berry, co-author of A Breathtaking Spectacle, a detailed history of American lX Troop Carrier Command occupation of the major airfields surrounding Grantham in 1944.
