Apparently they flew over Holme Moss, but it wasn't very spectacular. High up & not very clear.

Accompanied by a couple of fighters the two Lancasters flew overhead on their way to Airbourne a few weeks ago. I couldn't help wondering what it must have sounded like with hundreds of them on their way across the channel.

The sound of a Merlin always sends a tingle down my spine (a sign of a true Brit!)

We were in London a few years ago for a wedding & stayed over the weekend. Sunday morning I was up & about early doors & walking along Park Lane. The city was still & quiet apart from.....a lone Spitfire doing aerobatics over Hyde Park, the sound was incredible & I still get goosebumps thinking about it, magic.
