    Yesterday, I picked up a copy of METRO at the station and, today, found this in their preview of the flypast:

    "Up to 100 aircraft - ranging from a ... BE2 biplane to a ... Spitfire, a Dakota ... and a Gloucester Meteor from World War II - will take part in a flypast over southern England.".

    Who knew?

    Had to record the flypast as I was filming up in Lincs, but I did get to see the Red Arrows return over the Dambusters Inn in Scampton. Can't wait to watch it!

    The Daily Wail have excelled themselves, an 8 page special of pictures. Page 8 has a good picture of the BBMF. Part of the caption reads "the last flying Avro Lancaster is escorted by four Spitfires and a Hurricane".
    Man is not lost. Only temporarily uncertain of his position.

    Apparently 50 years ago it was 300 aircraft in the air & another 600 on the ground.
    If anybody ever tells you anything about an aeroplane which is so bloody complicated you can't understand it, take it from me: It's all balls. RJM.

    Good to see the RC-135...they seem to keep a low profile.

    My sister-in-law (who has always indulged my aviation interest by driving me to countless museums during my UK visits and in doing so has become a bit of an enthusiast) in Suffolk actually drove to Cholchester to watch the fly past and was very impressed.
    There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.
