Military Aviation A forum for the professionals who fly military hardware. Also for the backroom boys and girls who support the flying and maintain the equipment, and without whom nothing would ever leave the ground. All armies, navies and air forces of the world equally welcome here.

Yep,

The BBMF Instagram account put up a similar message. So, as I said there, well done to all the guys working hard to get them back in the air!

Well, I can say the Hurricane was out today and flew over me in Metheringham tonight.

And it was almost tucked away when the Silver 19 got back from NHT. Lancaster was back in the hangar by then. It was engine running Thursday

Beers for sorting them out....

Horse^^^^ for the numpties on forums who fly armchairs

I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

1 X Lancaster flew through the Vale of Belvoir this afternoon at low level between Woolsthorpe and Belvoir Castle. A lovely sight and sound.

All 3 displayed at Scampton this afternoon, wonderful sight.
Great job by all those involved in getting them back in the air.

TO, the escort returned over later. Presumably the Lanc went to the Stacker heap.

Lancaster and Spitfire flew over us yesterday on their way from Southport, looking and sounding fantastic as usual.
