The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, based at RAF Coningsby really are a joy to behold.

The sight and sound of WWII planes is tremendous and I am a big fan of what they do.

Their twitter and Facebook pages are worth a follow, with their fb page just sharing a video shot from the rear turret of a Lanc by a Flt Lt. https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hvid...bfd95f5bc1&oe=535B7221

Details of the dates and locations of the Canadian and RAF Lancaster performances throughout August, have just been announced: http://www.raf.mod.uk/bbmf/news/index.cf...FADEAE34DD&rss=true&utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter

The Canadian Lanc coming to the UK to perform alongside the RAF Lanc is a once in a lifetime event and although nothing is happening locally, it could be worth travelling.

There are rumours that the stay will be extended into September, with a possible visit from both Lancasters to Durham Tees Valley.
This hasn't been confirmed either way yet.

Just heard that the two Lancs and the Vulcan are all flying in formation today - hoping to catch a glimpse later today!

It ain't going to happen again.

Caught them.

The skies were filled with the roar of the Vulcan and the thud of the Lancs.

It seems to have made the national news too - should be on ITV news soon.

Just seen on twitter (@rafsynchro75), that the display typhoon and one of the BBMF Spitfires, is to perform a synchronised display this flying season.

Having seen (and heard) the Typhoon display a few times already, I am intrigued as to how the Spitfire is going to get involved!

Something from the BBMF?
Had heard the Vulcan was going to be about, but hadn't realised anything else was kicking around.

Any ideas what or when? Gonna have to investigate!
