RAF Wickenby Museum is a museum and archive about RAF Wickenby between 1942 and 1956 located at Wickenby Aerodrome North East of Lincoln in Lincolnshire.
The museum is based in the old Watch Office belonging to the airfield and features artefacts relating to RAF Wickenby, and the men and women who served there, between the years of 1942 and 1956. The airfield was bought into use in 1942 after construction finished and crews flying Wellington and Lancaster bombers flew on bombing missions from there during World War II. On display in the museum are artefacts, photographs, uniforms, memorabilia, medals, parts of bomber equipment and various records.
Included in the records kept are items such as log books, casualty records, reference books, POW records, crash records and station diaries. All these documents and photographs have then been computerised into a database to form an archive of information where is it possible to look up information on various individuals or aircrafts. If you wish to attend the museum in order to access the archive you will need to pre-arrange it first to make sure a volunteer is on site to assist you.
