          It's at my towns airshow next weekend, should be good to see, although I'm more interested in Eurofighter and Chinook displays

            Chinooks I see week in week out so they hardly interest me however the euro fighter is something else, the manoevability is amazing.

            Still the sound if them Merlin engines makes the hairs on the back if my knack stan hp more than anything modern can.

                  Sounded no different to any other prop plane to me

                  Few videos, sea wind ruins the sound mostly





                  Eurofighter sounded amazing as always, didn't video it though as too hard to keep up

                        A chap I knew was a navigator on Lancs during WW2. He was 19 at the time. One evening they wanted to have a party as one of the crew had his 21st birthday, they were hoping to be grounded but an op came up. If one of them was ill they stood a chance of not flying that night, and the guy I knew had raging earache so he went to the MO to see if there was any chance of being grounded. Unfortunately the MO said he had a perforated eardrum so he was off flying duty for a long period - rather than just that night.

                        His crew flew with a replacement navigation from another Lanc that had been shot up and was damaged. They never came back.

                        I remember him going to find their graves back in the 1980's - and standing at the grave of the navigator realizing that should have been his grave. That must have been hard to live with all these years.

                          I get that they are something special but to watch I like to see the more modern jets and what they can do as it boggles the mind.

                          To be honest I'm amazed at helicopters back flipping.



                          And a video just for you Tim x

                            Thanks babe.

                            I agree about the modern jets, I iften watch them at leeming and their manoeuvrability is amazing however to compare them to Lancasters is unfair.

                            Also Taurus, I couldn't even imagine the feelings of guilt that man must have felt throughout his life.
