Two Lancasters In Flight Together Once More

Defence of the Realm

2 lancs 2

Two Avro Lancasters have flown in formation together for the first time in over 50 years. This amazing sight took place today (August 14th 2014) at RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire after the arrival of the Canadian aircraft (known affectionately as ‘Vera’) in the UK to join the Battle of Britian Memorial Flight’s ‘Thumper’. Over the forthcoming air show season the two aircraft are expected to make around 60 air show appearances in what will probably be the very last time more than one Lancaster will fly together.

  1. Awesome! I love stuff like this! I did a ton of research on WW2 and the Battle of Britain when I was working on a novel last year, and I’m a sucker for this kind of stuff now. 🙂

  2. Living history. Can’t beat it. There’s a group of flyers here, I think they recently changed their name to Commemorative Air Force who save and fly planes from WW II. A private organization, their goal is to have that kind of living history too.
