Bomber County Gateway

Nottinghamshire County Council is backing exciting plans by the Bomber County Gateway Trust to mark the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force by constructing a huge Lancaster Bomber landmark next to the A46, between Newark and Lincoln.

The Council’s Policy Committee gave the go-ahead to contribute £10,000 towards the £100,000 project at its meeting today, on the 75th anniversary of the daring Dambusters mission during the Second World War.

The sculpture, located at Norton Disney, north of Newark will stand 30 metres (98 feet) high – 10 metres taller than the Angel of the North in Gateshead. It will depict an Avro Lancaster in flight and have a wingspan of 31 metres.

As well as honouring the RAF, and the 125,000 air crew of Bomber Command, which had numerous bases across the two counties during the Second World War, it’s anticipated that the sculpture could become a major tourist attraction in its own right, bringing significant economic benefits to the whole of Nottinghamshire.

Councillor Cutts said: “The Royal Air Force celebrates its centenary this year, which is an appropriate time to celebrate its numerous links with Nottinghamshire – including being the location for 15 military airfields during World War 2, home of ‘Dambusters’ composer, Eric Coates and Rolls Royce, where the engines that powered the Spitfire and Harrier Jump Jet were developed,

“The proposed Bomber Command memorial next to the A46, between Newark and Lincoln, is being brought forward by the Bomber County Gateway Trust and will be a stunning tribute to 125,000 Bomber Command aircrew who served our country, especially those 55,000 who were killed in action.

“As well as honouring the bravery of Bomber Command, I believe the memorial will be a significant landmark and major draw for visitors – providing spin-off economic and tourism benefits to businesses and attractions across Nottinghamshire, including the nearby Newark Air Museum. It will be an iconic landmark for the entire East Midlands region”.
