Flypast

I was out geocaching today, at Ashley Green, Bucks. As I was walking across an open field a C130 flew over at treetop height. This was closely followed by another and, as I quickly got out my iPhone to grab a video, I realised I could hear the unmistakable music of Merlin engines. Within seconds, the RAF’s Battle of Britain Memorial Flight appeared over the treetops! Awesome!

Whenever I see and hear one of these aircraft, especially The Lady herself, I get shivers down my spine. Bloody marvellous!

For the technically minded, the flight comprised the Lancaster, a Hurricane and a Spitfire. I managed to grab a short video.
