Lancaster Bomber swoops over Lincolnshire

Last summer, I was priviledged to be in Woodhall Spa in Lincolnshire, home of the legendary Dam Busters, and this was on the famous 40’s weekend.

To really add to the splendour of the occasion, we were standing in the Main Street and looked up to see the Lancaster do a sweep overhead – it was both a thrilling and an exhilarating moment.  The large crowds just loved it.

Sadly we will not be able to replicate that this year due to the dreaded virus – the 40s weekend is cancelled  – I suppose that it was inevitable but it is still dis-appointing to say the least

Avro Lancaster PA474 “City of Lincoln”, operated by the RAF’s Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, depicted flying over its ‘home’ city with Lincoln Cathedral below.

We are instead posting this picture above as the Lancaster Bomber swoops over nearby Lincoln Cathedraland BELOW a much older picture showing the Lancaster flying low over Hemswell Village.

Hemswell RAF Station is where the famous Dam Busters raid set off from – and then later in the mid fifties onwards it became the home of the Vulcan Bombers and coming right up to date – now the home of the Red Arrows.
