Metheringham Airfield

Opens seasonally from the last weekend in March to the last weekend in October. Wednesdays 11am to 4pm and Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays 11am to 5pm. Group Visits by prior arrangement.

An accredited museum and registered charity, entirely led and run by volunteers and located in original wartime buildings on the domestic area of the former RAF Metheringham.

Stimulating displays and knowledgeable volunteers share the story of RAF Metheringham and those who served with 106 Squadron of Bomber Command. The original gymnasium (Peter Scoley Hall) doubles as a large function room for events and is where we hold our evening lecture series during the open season. Our hangar houses our WW2 C47 Dakota, KG651, which visitors love to sit in and experience the atmosphere of the place.

There’s also a well-stocked onsite shop and a small café, ‘Coffeestall’ which serves light refreshments, subject to volunteer availability.

There is a small charge for entrance, which includes access to the Dakota. Supporters can join as a member to help raise funds to keep this little gem in the ‘middle of nowhere’ available for future generations. Nearby are the remains of runways and taxiways with a memorial to 106 Squadron. Find out more at
