Two Lancaster Bombers at Coningsby

What a wonderful picture this is taken on 14th August 2014 of the last two flying Lancaster Bombers on the runway at RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire which is very close to their original Woodhall Spa wartime home. The 1955 film The Dambusters has been featured on here before but this picture just tends to remind us – as the film did so well – what it was really like to see these aircraft lining up to take off. In those days sadly they would be going into danger and many would not return.  These two have come back to their home county 70 years later.
