Luftwaffe Berlin Museum Open Day

This old aircraft was part of the 211 aircraft on display at the Luftwaffe Berlin Museum Open day which was on 6th-7th September.

Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire had a stand there and did a very busy trade talking with German air enthusiasts about the offers in the county. Many were interested in the Canadian/BBMF Lancaster events and wished that they could be seen in Berlin.
