Avro Lancaster PA474
The Avro Lancaster PA474 at last weekends RAF Lyneham Airshow was running about 15 minutes late, and there was a dirty big black rain cloud coming in so I was a little worried the Lancaster might have to postpone, or that the rain would come and it would be too wet to take photos.
The Lancaster arrived 3-4 minutes before the rain storm arrived. We'd lucked out. We had to run for cover shortly before the end of its display, but we'd seen it.
I remember when I was little my Dad had made me an Airfix model of a Lancaster that was hanging for my bedroom ceiling for years, it was probably the first plane I actually knew the name of.
