The 158 Squadron Memorial by Peter Naylor

I came across this war memorial by accident in 2012 at the site of a WW2 airfield in the East Riding of Yorkshire not signposted you just stumble across it. Made in Steel and weathering a 7 man bomber crew in silhouettes stand 8 foot tall  ready for a mission. All who served with 158 Squadron names are etched into the bodies of the memorial.Modern wind turbines are the only propellers turning today on the airfield site.
