Just south of Lincoln, UK is the International Bomber Command Museum. Inside there is a museum giving stories, explanations, and lots of information about the Bombing campaigns of WW2.

Outside, in the grounds there is a monument to the over 55,000 men and women who died during operations of WW2. It consists of a tall, central 102ft, spire surrounded by the panels bearing the names of these lost men. On the north side there is a group of statues depicting airmen of the time.
