Lancaster Over Warboys

Lancaster Over Warboys

Ok, so this aint the greatest flyby in the world, the focus is iffy, the zoom is not well judged, and its a little erattcic at times. BUT, how often do you see a Lanc fly around a former Bomber Command Station? How often do you see one fly by a PathFinder Station? So, here is the BBMF Lancaster flying over the former RAF Warboys at 1500hrs on Sunday 11th May 2008.
