Lancaster over Peterborough

Nothing to do with cars this one lol.

The Lancaster bomber of the BBMF took to the skies this morning and made a flypast over Eye village near Peterborough - i'm not sure if it was part of The Dambusters 70th Anniversary "tour", but was great to see it whatever the reason.

I was only expecting a single pass, but she made 3 passes in total at low altitude.

Nice! we get a lot of low jets and dogfighting up here in Kings Lynn, unfortunately we only get an occasional glimpse of something old and interesting.

Taken from the BBMF website.

BY KIND PERSMISSION OF SEVERN TRENT WATER the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and 617 Sqn are planning to carry out a flypast on Thursday 16th May over the iconic twin towers of the Derwent Reservoir, recreating history as we commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Dambusters. The aircraft will pass overhead the reservoir between 1300 and 1315 (local time) – 3 passes by the RAF BBMF and 2 by the GR4’s of 617 Sqn.

GENERAL PUBLIC

There will be no events on the ground and there are no tickets being issued. The aircraft will continue to carry out a flypast at Chatsworth – at 1320 (local time) this is an excellent viewing area for the general public as there are facilities in place for parking and spectators wishing to photograph the aircraft. Standard car parking charges of 3.00 will apply - WWII veterans will be exempt from car parking charges, with kind permission from Chatsworth.

These flypasts will form part of several events taking place across the country – culminating in a commemorative service at Lincoln Cathedral on Friday 17th May.

Thank you for your comments

I found out about the flypast on the BBMF website and tried to find a suitable place to stand for pics........turns out the footbridge over the A47 was ideal as it flew pretty much overhead

And this is where I will be on Thursday - hoping to get to Derwent Reservoir so I can photograph the plane flying over the dam wall, between the towers.....if I get any decent pics i'll share them here too.
