Others have posted about the anniversary of the Dambusters raid today, on the seventieth anniversary of the event (the post on Trouble At T'Mill blog is very good), so I will confine myself to posting this picture I took of the Battle of Britain Lancaster doing a flypast at an event my father in law organised a few years ago.
I saw it again on Bank Holiday Monday doing no less than four flypasts at the Royal Yacht Squadron where he had booked it again for a Dunkirk Little Ships lunch in the Castle. A splendid sight and an even more splendid noise. My daughter has actually been in the cockpit of this, when she went on a CCF week at RAF Scampton.
My mother bought me a DVD set of four British War films a few years ago and so far the only one I have watched is Ice Cold in Alex but I notice that The Dam Busters is in the set too so I know what I am going to be watching tonight!
