Welcome to the official website of Metheringham Airfield Visitor Centre. This small museum, supported by the ‘Friends of Metheringham Airfield’, is dedicated to the men and women who belonged to or supported the 106 Squadron from 1943 until the end of the second world war.
The visitor centre contains an abundance of information, and displays many artefacts that relate to the flyers, aircrew and ground staff who flew and offered support to the squadron during its presence in Metheringham.
In the website you will find plenty of information about what we do, some of our history and how you might support us through membership. Better still, why not pay us a visit? ENTRY IS FREE. You will find our volunteers knowledgeable and welcoming.
Our online shop, launching soon, will offer an extensive range of books and gifts related to the famous ‘Bomber County’ and the units that operated in and around Metheringham.
RAF Metheringham became home to the 106 Bomber Squadron in 1943 despite it being far from complete. Although they only had one week to settle in, the squadron was fully operational in time for the start of the Battle of Berlin in November 1943. In total the squadron lost 59 Lancaster bombers by the end of the war, flew 5,834 sorties and lost over 1,000 airmen. The squadron remained in Metheringham until 1946, when the airfield was decommissioned.
We welcome pre-booked school visits from April 2nd – October 26th 2018. There are a variety of options and we are happy to cater to your needs. Play detective, sit in a Dakota or find out about FIDO! A great experience awaits!
Our next event is a lecture by Colonel Rich Graham USAF (Retd) on Wed 25th April about the operations of the 555th Fighter Squadron.
