Missed the lot!
Although a lanc +1 did ferry across local skies today mid morning/afternoon.

All you blokes chatting about serving.....who did what, if you donít mind me asking?
Something that fascinates me and always has done is the raf.

Lanc may well have been on its way to Fairford for this weekend's RIAT. I know its going to be performing with BBMF there but not sure if its flying from there or its base at Conningsby. F35 lighning II will be doing a fly over both days too.

My brother-in-laws father was an Air Commadore who organised the air display for the RAF 50th anniversary at RAF Abingdon. It was an amazing day. Never seen a display like it. After the event the Queen Mother asked him what was the highlight of the day for him. Meeting you Ma'am was his reply. He was awarded the Order of the Bath. Nice bloke.

He wrote a book called A Blenheim Summer. Shot down and a PoW for most of the war.
