Some great shots there Visual Approach!

Here are a few I took at Duxford recently. I felt the skies ruined nearly all my shots of the two Lancasters together. Have kept the shots to try to go back to one day, but I think they are beyond hope  :(

If your Lancaster photos are in focus and reasonably well exposed, please please post them.
I've been hoping some of you 'over there' would get to shoot those two together, their reunion being of historical interest.
Photos of the pair don't need to be art in order to be historic and iconic.

I'll have a look at them again either tomorrow evening or next week, depends how many BTCC shots I take over the weekend.
Fair point about it being historic. I was stood where a B17 was doing an engine rev test while the Lancasters were overhead with a Spitfire and Hurricane at Duxford (didn't have a wide enough lens with me sadly, and the crowds were far too deep for me to get an on the ground shot), but the noise was incredible!!

I would dearly love to see them fly together again, especially if the Mosquito that is around someone could come over too! But that may just have to stay in my imagination...

Great series!

Thanks :) Must admit it bugs me that I didn't catch the planes in the edges of the 3rd one, was trying not to fall backwards into a tank at the time!

Very nice series. Well done.

Thanks  :)

With this positive feedback I will have to post some more sometime!

Hi Tolusina.
I'll take your word for that, here are a couple of mine, taken at Goodwood, poor viewing position, poor sky! I went to the Bournmouth Air Festival to see them fly together, great viewing position, much better weather, the Canadian Lancaster was grounded by an engine issue! :(
I'm not terribly happy with the pics, but at least I saw them together. I will confess to finding it difficult to shoot with tears in my eyes, they cause me great emotion, possibly due to my father having been a Normandy veteran (foot slogger not fly boy).

Cheers, Graham.

Thank you Graham.
No, these photos aren't the high quality art as we see from Keith Breazeal regularly, but no matter.
From what I know, those are the last two Lancs flying and rather historic that they got the opportunity to fly together. It's very possible they'll never fly together again.

Photos of these old Birds are a reminder of The Greatest Generation, all that they did, all that they sacrificed.
Treasure these photos, the reminder of the teary eyed moment and all the reasons why you teared.
 
dhr90, please, your Lanc photos too!!

@captainkanji,
Thank You for the Diamond Lil photo above, the B-24 my Father flew was the "Chicken Ship".

I have Dad's copy of Stephen E. Ambrose' "The Wild Blue", which is mostly an account of George McGovern's B-24 missions with the 15th Air Force, 455th Bomb Group.
Dad's copy is annotated and footnoted, includes a copy of Dad's flight log. Dad flew with the 454th Bomb Group on many of the same missions that McGovern flew.
Reading Ambrose' account of McGovern's missions is also reading about Dad's.
---
I've been following this thread closely since its beginning, I sincerely Thank You All for your contributions, wish I had photos to contribute.
Thanks too to all those that have dedicated so much to keeping these birds flying.
 
For those who don't already know, WWII air crew losses exceeded those of even Infantry. So many did so much from the Home Front to the Battle Fronts, we owe an un-payable debt to all.
The Greatest Generation certainly has my gratitude that they did what they did so that following generations won't have to on that scale, hopefully, never again.

Aside, as emotional as these WWII War Bird photos are for me, I think my favorite photo of the thread is way back several pages, a Mustang And a Warthog together. You really didn't want to be in the other side's tank if either of those approached.
 
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You All.
