  1. That's so cool! I've never seen an airshow and would love to.

    I like how you caught the sailboat with the bomber.

  3. That Vulcan is very cool, I would like to see one of those fly. I saw one on static display near Lincoln when I lived over there.
    Was the Lancaster Bomber at the airshow? Its home field is near Tattershall Castle in Lincolnshire.
    The Lancaster flew over a parade in Arnold in Nottingham. I saw it a few other times too.
    We just had a B-17 here in Elko, NV.
    I am absolutely fascinated with World War II aircraft. That Hurricane is sweet.

  4. Hi Eric; the Lancaster was replaced by a Dakota; see here for a family Lanxaster story:

  5. The sail boat below the Vulcan almost looks to be a toy. It certainly gives the viewer an appreciation of how big the Vulcan actually is.
