Low flying WW2 plane

Recommended Posts

Did anyone see the low flying plane around 4.30pm? I think it was a Lancaster, or maybe a Halifax bomber.


I saw it from the flyover in Beighton, heading towards Handsworth roughly on course with the river. I never appreciated just how quiet yet majestic these aircraft were, and how low they could actually travel safely.


The guy I spoke to was certain it was going to crash into the marshes at Beighton, but obviously hasn't.


Was there an airshow today?

iv seen the lancaster many times, its usually a part of the battle of britian fly over, with a spitfire and a hurricane, its a lovely big old plane and i think there is only 1 still flying, a few others are in museums, very majestic and poignant when it flies over............i love an air show
