RAF Brize Norton
Yesterday at 08:50 ·
Coming in Summer, 2015, on a TV near you, is the worldwide screening of a documentary programme that will quite probably bring tears of emotion to the eyes of many who have had a personal connection to these aircraft, as they watch with fond memories and pride, the story of two Avro Lancasters, which came together and embarked on a historic tour of the UK.
This isn't just a story, it is a memorial to our 'Bomber Boys' and all those who fought to protect our freedom... We will remember them.

The Royal Air Force Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (RAF BBMF) is administratively part of the Royal Air Force No. 1 Group and operates from RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire.
The RAF BBMF aircraft are regularly seen at events commemorating World War II, upon British State occasions, notably the Trooping the Colour celebrating Queen Elizabeth II's birthday and at air displays throughout the United Kingdom and Europe. They are proud to have His Royal Highness Prince William, Duke of Cambridge as their Patron.
The RAFBBMF commemorates the past of the RAF's Air Combat Power - Lest We Forget.
The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum @CWHM Avro Lancaster, affectionately named 'Vera', visited to mark her role in the Second World War, and accompanied our own Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (BBMF) Lancaster at many airshows, events and activities, throughout the UK, during August and September 2014.
This precious aircraft, known throughout the world as the 'Mynarski' Lancaster, is dedicated to, and commemorates the actions of, Pilot Officer Andrew Mynarski VC, who lost his life in an attempt to save a fellow crew member, trapped in the rear turret of their burning aircraft as it fell from the sky over France. In a fitting tribute to Andrew, Vera made a poignant visit Durham Tees Valley Airport, formerly RAF Middleton St George, where he was based.

Got these pic's yesterday. No info with them but it looks like 800 squadron Sea Harrier landing on HMS Invincible circa 1983.

Once upon a time in the not too distant past we had a Fleet Air Arm.

Some great pic's of great aircraft there. The Roc wasn't a great success but the others saw some years of service between them, all in a combat role except for the Sea Prince which was a trainer aircraft.

I'd love to have seen the Barracuda flying. Sadly there are no surviving Barracudas anywhere in the world not even in museums although the FAA Museum does have a partial wreck fished off the sea bed. I have about 70 photo's so here's some of the best.
