Video shows spectacular bird’s eye view of Lincoln Bomber Command memorial

This story is over

It’s towered over Lincoln from the peak of Canwick Hill for more than two years, but now breathtaking aerial footage has been produced showing the Bomber Command memorial spire from the skies.

The 360 degree aerial footage of the memorial and the newly-completed International Bomber Command Centre was published on Youtube by ovoto360 on January 21.

The video also shows the intricate walls of names surrounding the spire, documenting hundreds of fallen.

The Bomber Command centre has been six years in the making and will open to the public for the first time on January 30.

It includes digitised stories and documents from hundreds of crew and families connected to the ‘Bomber Boys’ in its education centres and immersive learning rooms.

An official opening ceremony will be held for the centre on April 12 as part of celebrations for the 100th anniversary of the RAF.

There has been quite a transformation of the space since October.
