The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, the Avro Lancaster and the Spitfire
Nicely caught Neil, you must have enjoyed seeing it.
It was amazing Ian, the whole show was great but these two stole the show for me even though the Red Arrows were there. The pictures don't really show a lot of detail because all of the displays were between us and the sun. We should have took the ferry to the Castle early doors it would have been much better.Incidentally my Aunt was sent to Manchester during the war to help build the Lancasters,she's 92 and still remembers it,mainly because she hated it.I wonder could this have been one she worked on.
I've sat in a Spitfire Neil at RAF Cranwell, where i spent a week of training in the 60s (The Air Training Corps) great fun. Like Richard
Richard, i do aplogies for the very late reply,somehow i missed the mail alert. lucky you, as for me i just love to hear the Merlin engines, thanks a lot;-)
Hello again Steve, I came away with close on 300 shots that day having never photographed aircraft before i just hoped for the best. Considering the bright sunlight and my lens being 200mm max i'm quite pleased with some of the results. On the downside,we missed the B52 Bomber which did a flypast...the flippin coach was late picking us up...Grrrr!! Thanks again Steve.
We did have a good day Steve, the airshow was an added bonus as we didn't know it was on until we arrived in Jersey,bit annoyed about the B52 though. Still, the Lanc and the Spitfire made up for it;-) If we ever go again we'll try and go to Elizabeth Castle early doors, its a good viewpoint,trouble is a lot of other people think so too.
