Today we were lucky enough to witness the last two remaining Lancaster bombers flying past our area. Yesterday we went over to Kirmington in Lincolnshire as they were due to fly over the airport there at lunchtime. Unfortunately, due to bad weather at RAF Coningsby, they were unable to take off. Apologies for the quality of the photos. We only had a matter of a few minutes to take them and my zoom is not very zoomy.
The late great Beatrice Printemps (Roberto's mother) used to sit at her bedroom window when she was a wee lass and count the Lancasters as they went out on their missions. She told us that she once counted 600 in one night.
