Due to a family tie to the RAF and a large family interest in World War II aircraft and military history I have also developed an interest in this area.
My main interests are D-Day and the deception operations however I love to see the aircraft flying (both World War II and modern) and specifically the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
The Lancaster Bomber is a very majestic aeroplane, as are the Spitfire and Hurricane that usually accompany it during the Memorial Flight.
Every year my family and I like to visit the air show at RAF Waddington where the Memorial Flight is one of the main attractions (along with the Red Arrows and the Vulcan Bomber - which may soon have to be retired again unless you have a ridiculous amount of money to give to the restoration fund). And yes we will be going again this year.
The Lancaster Bomber doesn't really need a commentary which is why I chose this video from the Dambusters' 65th anniversary. If you don't want to see the short introduction skip ahead to 0.30.
I was going to post my own photographs of the bomber flying but blogger decided it didn't like them and wouldn't upload them properly. But the video below has a short slide show which you can look at whilst listening to The Dambusters March.
