Military Picture Of The Week


This image, courtesy of the UK MOD, is of 'Vera', a seventy year old aircraft and one of two surviving Avro Lancasters from World War Two, on her way to landing at RAF Conningsby.  Vera’s home is the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum just outside Hamilton, Ontario.  Vera is being teamed up with Thumper, the Lancaster from the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, for a series of events.

My dad flew them out of Greenwood, NS, in the fifties. Noisy beasts.

I hope to see them both together while they are in the UK. Thanks for the loan Canada, that's another one we owe you.

She appears to be flying over a former airfield. It's a bit addicting to look for them on Google and through the various websites dedicated to old and abandoned airfields in Britain.

...on Google Earth..., rather.
