Yorkshire Air Museum
An Evening with 'Lusty Lindy'
The former RAF Elvington has been the home of the Yorkshire Air Museum (YAM) since 1986. With over 40 aircraft on display and an increasing membership of currently 1,000 plus, it is a museum that is not standing still. In March 2009 the museum tried something a new by organising a very successful photographic night shoot of what many would say is their prize exhibit, a Handley Page Victor K.2 (XL231) known affectionately as 'Lusty Lindy' as her nose art shows. She is kept in ground operational condition by Andre Tempest and his ground crew. The night shoot raised much needed funds which was used to buy 10,000 litres of fuel for the 35,000 lbs capacity tanks.
