Not going, getting anywhere near was going to be grief and having seen it twice I thought if I don't clog up the road it may give someone else the chance.

I wonder if they get a fitting send off.....like what was planned when they arrived even though the weather wasn't very kind in the end.

Derwent flypast took place followed by one run over Chatsworth. Superb!

A small but very enthusiastic crowd was at Chatsworth. We hadn't planned to go anywhere near Derwent preferring a lurk near J29 on the M1 instead. However, a BBMF tweet early afternoon mentioning Chatsworth got us up and out over the hills to the big House. Plenty of space.

Vera starts her journey home on Tuesday.

Wwwop's daughter.

My daughter who was at Chatsworth phoned me this afternoon as the two Lancasters flew over - so I could hear them.

That was a lovely thing to do. It is a long time since I sat on the RH mainwheel on Thumper holding the trolley acc connected (1971).

Derwentwater Flyby

Nutloose, that's brilliant, thank you from Canada! Am circulating the link asap.

Frustratingly, cannot post the picture mentioned below, but World Naval Ships Forum has a thread entirely devoted to the ship paintings of Jim Rae - who also paints aircraft.

So, please try this link:-

Jims Ship Paintings - Page 132 - World Naval Ships Forums

......he shows the partially completed water-colour and then, lower down, the finished article of the initial arrival at Coningsby.
