I spent an excellent day at RAF Waddington with my friend Tony Trotman-Beasty on Thursday, photographing the last two flying Lancaster bombers from WW2 and also XH558, the last flying Vulcan. Despite an early start, there were thousands of people there to witness this historic event. I managed to get a good cross selection of images although the flypast of all three planes was a touch challenging with just a 70-200mm lens – too far away to get a meaningful image.
Lovely weather and a lot of action and things going on in East Park prompted a huge turnout on Sunday 27th for the Veterans’ Day. The highlight was a flypast from three WW2 aircraft and the same from the Red Arrows. I’d like to have seen more of the Red Arrows as they only made one pass, but they had been in Sunderland earlier in the day, seen by my friend, Pete Stockton and then were due in Lincoln after being in Hull so a long day of concentration no doubt. Here’s a couple of images from the day :-
